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.
