I have survived 1/3 of the Certificate in Writing course I am pursuing at UW. I started out with half going to be Memoir and the other half being Fiction. In the middle of the first Fiction course I bugged and changed my 2nd Fiction course to one called Writing & Publishing the Personal Essay which sounds a lot like Memoir. So I’m going to press on and finish this course of studies that I signed up for. Wish me Luck.
