Regarding the Welsh, I've signed up for two classes this year in an attempt to give learning Welsh priority. Will this be the year I finally make the leap from "reasonably fluent learner" to being an actual confident Welsh speaker?
The other course that's about to start is the Advanced Creative Writing. I have actually done the first couple of activities because I've learned over the years of doing Open University courses that I need to get ahead at the start, even if only a little way. I invariably slip behind later on. This year I will be learning to write scripts as well as continuing with fiction and poetry.
I will not only be busy with courses. All being well, I should get my creative writing students in a few weeks and then they will need a lot of my time and attention. Not only that, I want to do some tidying in the garden before the weather turns nasty and there are various household tasks that have been put off for too long. Put all this together and it means that a busy period looms. As a result, I'm having to limit time spent on the Interwebs. So don't worry if I seem rather quieter than usual. I may actually still be posting because I like to record what I'm up to for my own reference if nothing else and I'll try to keep up with my friends list, but I may be commenting less. Sorry.
