First I have to say I did very well on the presentation to the graduate class about presentations. I used a fake therapy called 'TER Therapy' I had developed for a book I wrote last year. It was so much fun to discuss my 'fake doctor', 'fake therapy' and all of that. I think I enjoy putting that lie inbetween two truths for a story, just 'peppering' my stories with factual information along with fictional information. I have developed this little technique for some years now, I think. It's always important to me to make a story believable and yet, unbelievable at the same time. The doctor, Dr. Whiete, who is in my story about 'TER Therapy' is a neurologist and pyschariatrist, however he is also a 'transidenent' that can literally 'go back and forth through the world of the living and the dead'. Yes, it's unbelievable, though my husband who is a ghost hunter may find him to be very helpful on investigations, but the fact that he studied neurology and psycharistry and is a medical doctor puts him in a more realistic frame. That's what I strive for --- a bit of fiction, a dose of reality and an intermingling of both to make a fun, interesting story.
I am now moving onto my fifth and FINAL week of the first course in college! Yea! This week I only have to post one discussion all about Reflection on the last five weeks, which I completed earlier and posted, and then a final paper on Transformational Learning. I am always worried when it comes to papers because the directions are vague sometimes. For instance, in this paper I am to write two to three paragraphs briefly describing transformation learning stages and then give an example of having one. All right, to be honest, I could go on and on about a transformational learning I have experienced. After all, I founded a theater group, had different jobs, had a child, married, went back to school, etc. Yet, all of those experiences would take far too long to explain in merely a few paragraphs. I could write and write and write. Scary, I know. So I'm stuck for what I should use. Should it be very personal or should I just use my college experience as my current transformational learning? \\
Since transformational learning is like 'walking through hell, getting tossed around a bit, getting burned, stung, beaten up, and then being spit out' to finally realize what you couldn't realize before, maybe I should use a very personal experience. I don't know. It's such a fun experience...every time.
Well, I guess it comes down to. What do I want to write about? Problem is I want to write my stories and another book. That doesn't bode well for my class assignment today.
Until next time...
