My first post. Well, it did seem like a good idea at a time. I applied to Aberystwyth university to do an MA in creative writing. And wouldn’t you know, they called my bluff and accepted me! Me? Heh. Up until now I had been a member of a weekly creative writing class in the Arts Centre, but I decided it was time I did something more serious. I’d wanted to do it a while back and I thought it’s now or never. I’m 58 now, when I’ve finished and got the MA in my little hand, I’ll be 60. Seems like an auspicious time. 

So, this. I have a shed-load (technical term) of reading to get through. Not to mention essays, stories, projects, and work on a final dissertation of oh, a mere 20,000 words or so. And of course I had to do a blog as well. (facepalm) I have to do a writing journal for one module, so I decided to make it into a blog as well, and blog for all seven modules.

I’m doing the MA over two years, so not too much pressure I hope. this little blog will document the work I have to do, and have done. I hope it will be of some interest, besides a record for myself. So, onwards!
