Since my old computer went down (the one on which I kept all my files and current projects), I have tended to work on my website rather than start new projects as I promised myself I would do. I thought I would start afresh but I have not felt inspired. Website work needs attention too so I have not wasted my time.
But I felt I needed a couple of writing prompts. I asked myself what kind of writing is so new to me that it would stretch my brain in all directions and help me see better. To make a long story short, I discovered a free online course in screenwriting, which I printed out and skimmed over. I do believe that going through the “homewoprk” this 9 week course assigns would light a few bulbs in anyone’s brain.
But what really caught my attention was a suggestion right in the middle, following lesson four or five, to be thinking about how to share gained knowledge, whether by teaching, mentoring, acquiring a study buddy, or whatever.
What better way to use and remember lessons than by sharing?
