After two weeks I am just as certain that this course is right for me as I was before it started, and it’s because of the little things like – the different and very non-horrific approach to ice-breaking; the fact that David Bishop works to a list and ticks each action after completion; the fact that Sam Kelly smiles even when she is talking; that there is such a mix of people on the course; that we have our very own library, writer’s room and reader-in-residence; that I have already been challenged and introduced to something new; that we have a glut of guest speakers from all walks of the industry – and I know this is all just the start.  I try never to use emoticons in anything I do (except on Skype with my friend Anji) but if I did I would be posting a little smiley face right about here…
