   I’m still going to school. This past week I earned my Certificate of Completion for Hillsdale College’s online lecture course on “Mark Twain: Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and Selected Short Stories.” Watched nine videos followed by nine exams, then a final exam. BSP:* I aced the final and two of the exams (got 90s and 80s on the others). Next on my scholastic agenda and sitting in my inbox is Hillsdale’s course exploring C. S. Lewis’s writings. Best of all, their courses are in my price range: Free!

  My motto: If I’m lucky I’ll get another year older, so I might as well try to get smarter, too. I love learning new things. I recommend it.

(*BSP = Blatant Self Promotion)

Etcetera and P.S.A.

  Readers take note... Excerpt of a quote from John Steinbeck: “///… a story has as many versions as it has readers. Everyone takes what he wants or can from it and thus changes it to his measure. Some pick out parts and reject the rest, some strain the story through their mesh of prejudice, some paint it with their own delight. ///” — John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent
   Writers: Passing along a link to Jane Friedman’s blog and a guest post by editor and author Joe Ponepinto Maybe you’ll find a helpful tidbit or two. I did.
