In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
The college sort of got going last week, but this week is the first proper week of the new term, which meant I was not only teaching but learning. This morning was the first session of the Advanced Welsh course I've signed up for and this afternoon I taught the computing degree students.

So now I am tired and I am hungry and I have no idea what to cook for dinner! I need to go shopping for more food, but my mind is a blank. I'm just hoping that I'll see something I fancy when I get to the supermarket. But the first day of teaching has gone well and the students are great.

In other news, I thought I'd mention that my strategy of getting back into writing by setting myself the daily task of just opening a chapter file, looking at it and then closing it again has worked. I read my way through the second half of the book and now my daily task is to summarise 1 scene per day in order to create an outline which I can then use to sort the current mess into something resembling a coherent first draft.

Current Mood: sleepy accomplished but tired
