It’s a great class. All of the gadgets and tubes in the ambulance finally have a context. I know what a BVM is and even how to use it. I’m not looking forward to having someone vomit on my shoes though and the instructors keep talking about that.
I’ve been stuck for five months and just had a breakthrough. I tried actually typing word for word a breathtaking essay by James Agee and just seeing how he did it. I went on for a few pages and then felt inspired enough to go back to my own work. Sometimes an exercise like that can help me find the magic again.
