One of my goals for 2012 is to apply to Orson Scott Card's Boot Camp writers workshop, but my worry was that he might not hold it. I had nothing to worry about. Boot camp applications are now available, for June 18-23 in Greensboro, N.C.
Going to this would require I pay for tuition, an airline ticket, room and board. Not cheap. But I've heard from many fellow writers that the cost is worth it. If all goes as I hope it will, I'll be spending a week in beautiful North Carolina this summer. If not - because only 14 spaces are available - I will continue to save my pennies and apply again next year.
I've had a busy couple of days (volunteering in my daughter's preschool class, going to the theater with my husband, getting my annual medical checkup), so I haven't done much beyond tweaking what I've already written. I can't keep skipping days like this. Even if it's only a couple hundred words, I need to write every day.
