I mumbled something about there always being something to learn, which probably sounded a bit smarmy, but it's true! I think you'd have to be incredibly arrogant to believe you couldn't learn anything more about writing.
I've been writing fiction for ten years. I've over four hundred 'how to write' books on my bookshelf and I've read them all several times, plus others I've got from the library or been lent. All had something to offer. I love going to creative writing classes as a student. This year, apart from the RNA conference, I've done one week-long course and one day course, and I've got another booked for later on in the summer. What could be nicer?
That's what's so fascinating about creative writing - every day another aspect presents itself, every day you learn something new. And if the writing ever palls, if the imagination is exhausted, well, there are always some new crisp pages of someone else's book to slip into. Reading, writing, learning. Reading, writing, learning. My personal trinity.
At last! I've got my finger out and have committed to running some day courses:
