Belleville, here I come!


250px-Belleville_skylineThe first day of summer and I’m heading down the 401 to beautiful Belleville , Ontario, a city Wikipedia says was an important railway junction back in 1855. But I’m not chasing history today, my destination is Loyalist College and Rosemary Aubert’s week-long writing workshop.

It will be the third time I’ve taken Rosemary’s workshop, and it’s come at just the right time. I’m badly in need of a tune-up. I need to get my writer’s oil changed, my gears greased. According to the description in Loyalist’s summer calendar, we’ll learn how to delve into the secrets of our own lives to bring alive the setting, characterization and plot of our fiction. “This is not an autobiography course, but a new way of generating great ideas…Using in-class exercises as well as group critiquing, you will work with other writers to delve deeply into the best source of inspiration: yourself.”

Sounds good to me. Belleville, here I come!
