Share the love

Tomorrow I start my creative writer's club at school. I have 40 signed up. I doubt 20 will show. Fewer still will show up after they find out what's involved. I'm not doing tryouts, but I am expecting them to submit to at least one contest a month. I guess I could tell them I'm doing the same, that way they know I'm practicing what I preach. Additionally, they'll have to critique each other's work. Not just "I like it" but really delving into what is good and not so good about the writing. It's good practice, although tough. Maybe I can thicken their skins a bit.

New joint venture

A friend of mine and I are planning on meeting every two weeks to critique each other's work. She and I think a lot alike, which is good and bad. Good in the sense we understand each other, bad in the sense if we understand it, others might not. It'll be fun, definitely. Helpful, probably. Looking forward to it.

There's something stuck under my "f" key that makes it not work every few strokes. Wonder what kind of typing demon it is. Hmmm....
