Learning Curves

Leave a comment

I want instant information and knowledge download just like Neo in the Matrix.  I keep telling my kids that the learning process is important, it teaches you things over and above the actual content of the subject you’re studying, but I’m getting too old to be bothered with that sort of crap.  I want to know and I want to know now, not a year down the line.  I want to learn how to: cook Indian dishes properly; fly an aeroplane – I get air sick so I’d never be able to learn, this way would be much better (what’s the point?  just one of those things I always wanted to be able to do); Tang Soo Do black belt – although that involves muscle memory more than cerebral memory; fix the plumbing; install solar heating; talk to teenagers without sounding like an archaic moron!

If I already knew how to do all those then I could spend my time learning all the other things…

Author: Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2014 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Banished-ebook/dp/B008PGM4TQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361913026&sr=8-1. If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you lied it - or even why not!
