A Cabbage with a College Education

Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Mark Twain (1835 – 1910)

I didn’t post yesterday because I was finishing up my creative writing packet for admissions. I’m applying for college after many years of talking about it and thinking about it. In three weeks, I’ll know whether or not I’ll be accepted for the Spring 2008 semester to finally finish my degree. Scary and exciting at the same time. 2008 is already filling up with interesting new learning experiences. In February I’ll be in Arizona for a writing conference, April is the Pikes Peak Writers Conference and in May my uncle and I are planning a trip to Ireland for Listowel Writers Week.
What do you have planned in 2008 to further your education as a writer?
Today make a plan for learning in 2008. Take an online class or a local workshop.Many of the conferences I attend are on scholarship or volunteer hours. If you’re serious about learning the craft of writing you will find a way. Now get back to work!

  1. You know I can’t resist anything that starts out with a Twain quote!
    Good luck with school! You’ll be just fine. “Women of a certain age” have the discipline, motivation and smarts to do very well when they go back to school.
    P.S. Can I carry your luggage to Ireland?

  2. I’m am sooooooooooo envious. Can you pack me in your suitcase so I can tag along and peek over your shoulder.

    Congratulations on going back to school! You have my wholehearted support and I’m here if you need someone to proof your assignments. I have a son at Florida Gulf Coast University and it’s our weekly ritual to read his assingments together.

    be blessed,
