I have made the decision to enroll in a course of study as I am really serious about developing myself as a writer, and know just from my forays into the area that there is so much I don’t know about how to “be” a writer. Not only that, but wow, there is so much I don’t know about how to find out how to be a writer … what a minefield of information to absorb! I am so rusty am I when it comes to navigating the various information sources about tertiary education – like what if any income support is available … does Austudy even exist anymore, or can I get a scholarship? I have spoken to so many different people at the University of Western Australia, and still am not clear about so many things. I am a total control freak when it comes to knowledge, in that I hate not having it. Maybe another incarnation of Ms Ego is Ms Smarty-Pants (note her very soy latte sipping oh-so-middle-class double-barreled name)?
So I am throwing it out to my many followers (all three of you) … how do I do this, where do I start and who do I talk to? Apart from UWA, which I would very much like to attend, are there other options for me in Perth?
In the meantime, apparently it is only half an hour until I have to torture myself at PT. I wonder what awfulness my trainer has in store for me today. Of course, Ms Smarty-Pants is telling me that I should blow that off and add a piece of organic lemon cheesecake to accompany said soy latte,
