Today is the first day of classes here at the local university. While there has been a lot of stress involved in preparing for today, I am excited to start my classes.

Particularly the only class I have today: Creative Non-fiction.

So excited!

More to come later....

"Creative Non-fiction," in all my years as a reporter and writer, I've never heard of that; sounds like a contradiction in terms. In graduate school, I taught "Creative Writing" and gave everyone an "A." When the Department head chastised me for it, I pointed out that it's virtually impossible to tell what's creative and what's not, let alone "grade" it. Critique it, yes, but to give "creativity" a grade seemed, well, rude to me.

I should point out that I was a bit of a radical to say the least, while in college...but finished up appropriately with all degrees sought.

Have fun in your new class. I look forward to hearing about it.
