Had a lovely lunch…

Had a lovely lunch yesterday with Sapna, Venu, and Rupa, followed by a nice first day of teaching. My intro to fiction writing class seems to be split pretty evenly between students who are really excited to take a fiction writing class (some of them have been writing for a while already) and graduating seniors for whom this was the only thing that fit in their schedule. Hmm. We'll see how that goes. I'm going to try something new, a modification of something Lori did in her class -- we're spending a good chunk of class time just writing, the idea being that by far the hardest part of continuing with being a writer is getting your to actually write. So we'll model that, and practice getting a good amount of work done in just an hour and a half. We'll see how it goes.

Today, watch the kids, putter around the house. Weather is gorgeous, so should be a pleasant day.
