I have to register soon for school and I'm having a rough time.
I have several problems:

1. I can't decide if I want to take ONE class or TWO classes. If I take two classes, I'll be that much closer to being done. On the other hand, with my new position at work I would have to finish work at 3pm and take classes from 4-6pm mon-thurs. After eating and showering, when do I study?
2. If I DO take two classes, the one's I want to take will both be challenging for me. I want to take Children's literature (which I heard is a B*tch) and that involves lots of reading and writing papers. I also want to take Writing Fiction....which I would imagine involves a lot of writing. I want to do well in my classes, but I don't think the schedule problems mentioned in #1 would allow for this.
3. If I decide to take ONE class. Which one? I've been wanting to take Children's Lit for several years now and I know I'll enjoy it. But I've always enjoyed writing, and would really enjoy the fiction class. It scares me a little. I'm afraid I won't be any good at it. But this semester the same teacher that I had for Intro to Fiction will be teaching it and I Loved him!

So there you have it folks. My dilemma. Could you help a sister out? What would you do?

I took Children's Lit (and adolescent lit) in college. They are tough classes but very enjoyable. I guess it's all about finding a balance. I'd definitely give it a try to take both. They both sound really fun and challenging!

Hi there, I found my way here through the RT Cave. I say take Fiction Writing. I was an English major, and guess what? No one in those classes ever thinks they're good enough. You'd probably do great, and if you love the professor, too, you'd probably really enjoy the class.

Ditto Amy. Do the one that scares you first, take it by itself so you can fully concentrate on it, and then reward yourself with princess fanciness when you're done!
