At last, the ShowMe Writers Masterclass is upon us. Chuck Sambuchino (Writer’s Digest) is the keynoter this weekend and a whole slate of talented people will be at the University of Missouri to share their insights. I am excited to learn more about writing screenplays. For me, these kinds of events are important. My creative juices get pumped. Even if I pick up just one new technique, or make connections with only one more person, I consider it a win. Life is spinning by so quickly we can’t just sit on the sidelines. We need to keep learning.
After a wonderful time visiting old Fargo classmates and relaxing at the lakes in Minnesota, I am ready to get back into the real world. First, I want to share words from a Minnesota construction zone – I think they sum up the politeness of Minnesota – “Merge, take turns.” It was so refreshing to be up north again!
I am preparing to teach journalism this semester at the University of Missouri – the same institution where I earned my undergraduate degree. Talk about full circle! I just unearthed one of my first assignments for the very same class. I last taught journalism when we lived in Illinois and I am really looking forward to this opportunity.
I realize I never posted a blog interview from Ane Mulligan: http://www.anemulligan.com/2014/03/shifting-gears-sarah-kohnle.html
