Workshops: We're all parts in the same group critique machine. I think we're all figuring out where we fit, if that makes sense. It feels like my writing brain is breaking down and rebuilding itself. This setting feels good.
The writing exercise today was excellent: write ten beginnings to ten different stories! Filing away that one for later and possibly using some of the openings for the coming weeks.
Homework: Finish story and print/email before 5pm! Then read the three other stories that will be critiqued tomorrow!
Getting to bed on time may be a pipe dream.
