 Dad has planted the seed of an excellent idea in my head. It was last week I think and it has since then found a lovely spot in my mind to go to sprouting.  He said to me that I could make a profession out of writing grants for people. Before he mentioned that to me it had never occurred to me. I had thought that it would be a really good idea to take grant writing given my chosen fields of study, but I had never thought of it as a something I could possibly do to make a living and or help people. I have always wanted to help people, and I like to believe in people and their ideas, and by my nature I tend to see the positive and would happily try and show others (possible investors) what I see.

I mean I could be wrong to get so excited. I do have a lot of doubt around my writing abilities. Also there is the whole matter of my past struggles with deadlines. That said, I can't deny that I'm really caught up in this, maybe it's partly because it's so out of left field. My Dad's a clever guy. Also the other person I have mentioned this to thought it was a good idea. I just think it's always nice to have back up plans.

Being practical for my history and anthropology degree I was already thinking about looking into a grant writing class at PSU. Dad told me they had one. However looking at the class bulletin for the 2010-2011 university year, there wasn't a class listed. I decided not to give up so I did a google search for classes on grant writing and found this helpful site> http://grantwritingusa.com/events.html much to my excitement they have up coming workshops in Vancouver WA. and in Portland OR. It would cost a pretty penny, but you seem to get a lot out of it and it would be helpful to my career in the history or anthropology field, or really, whatever I end up doing. I think it would be well worth it. When I mentioned it to Dad he said he figured it would be expensive, but he still seemed to agree that it would be a good idea.

Who know what will end up happening, but for now I thought I'd get this down and see what others think as well. I find new possibilities exciting.
