Recently, I've been organizing my thoughts for my screenwriting class, and the prep work has been illuminating. This is subject matter I know well, but now I'm forced to reexamine why I believe what I believe, and in the process I'm discovering all sorts of wonderful, new things. Love it, love it, love it. The left and right hemispheres of my brain are playing off each other in ways I enjoy, which means the decision to teach this class is already paying off. Very jazzed I decided to do this; hopefully that feeling stays with me all semester long. I'm encouraged that it will, in part because all the applications I received had something interesting going for them. Not fun turning any of the students away, but with so many applicants after so few slots, that's the nature of the beast.
Hmm. I wonder if there's any chance my class will wind up like this?
