When Is It Time To Go Back To Class?

It’s been a while since I was in school last. Actually, it’s been quite a long time, but let’s not focus on my age. Lately, I’ve been thinking about the idea of going back to school. I’ve thought about perhaps getting an MFA or just taking some writing classes.

I’ve even thought about going back to school to get a higher degree, though I’m still not clear on the field of study. So I’m curious about what you think. Is it worth it to take extra writing classes? Is it worth it to get an MFA? Or maybe just find a retreat, have you done one of those?

Besides that my writing is actually going well. My focus is still on my short stories though I do want to return to my novel soon. And I’m trying to build a freelance career just as a side hustle. But I’ve got a lot of ideas turning so I’m having fun doing the research. What sort of freelance life do you have? Any advice?

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
