I apologize to all my former professors at Towson University for not doing more with this. I just want to say I am grateful to you; you taught me a lot (as did some few of the students). Some tried to work with me when I was unable to go to class, when I couldn’t provide more than a few ER discharge papers, sometimes less. And one, Professor Michelle Chester, who said, “For what it’s worth, you’re a wonderful writer.” All of you helped me to remember why I started writing in the first place.
So, despite all the hell I went through the past couple of years, I know there were three places where I could get help for something, at least. And it was for something that has always been a part of me, something that in many ways helped to define me. SFF Chronicles Network, Absolute Write Water Cooler, and Towson University. They were, really, all the help I needed.
For anyone who has the means to get an education at a good school, I highly recommend it. For those who don’t, you can still write, and if you have friends, writers or not, to read your work and comment, you have a better chance to improve your craft. That chance rises even more at forums like Chronicles and AW. Now I would also add by blogging. I wouldn’t let these resources go to waste.
