It is funny how projects just seem to pop up out of nowhere. I will be writing various blog posts/articles for a couple of different sites. One will be a series of post outlining what students, parents, and alums should know about study abroad. They second will be on various topics relating to education and writing. How perfect, right?
As for the study abroad articles, it is already leading me to a much larger project. I took some time to outline various study abroad topics. I don’t have a series of blog posts, I have a book.
At one time, I planned to start a blog relating to study abroad and student travel experiences. Frankly, I am glad I didn’t get it off the ground. I truly believe I have enough for a book – a collection of essays relating to all things study abroad and alternative spring break (ASB, now Alternative Spartan Breaks). I need to get going on this! It may serve as a template for other projects – including my dad’s hunting stories and my canoe livery adventures.
It is wonderful how one thing seems to lead to another. I can’t wait to see where all of this will lead me. I wish I could spend more time writing, but I must live my life too. There is a constant tension between the two.
As I stated here, it is wonderful to feel validated when you least expect it. The other day, I came across this article highlighting certain characteristics of writers. All but one or two apply to me! I can only hope to grow through all these new experiences.
