the spaces in between, on the first day of school
so, today was the first day of the semester, and, as usual, i was all nerves leading up to it. i’d done the work, prepared the material, worked out the syllabi, all that stuff, but there’s always that little bit of stage fright just before walking into class. i think they went pretty well, though it’s always hard to judge responses the first day.
anyway, i was able to get more revision done on the book before and between classes, so i’m now on page 107. i know, slower going than desired, but today saw solid progress in shorter times. despite the other classes and anxiety, felt like i was back in the swing of things.
oh, and for reference, when i said i cracked that character’s voice, i was wrong. that said, i was wrong for the right reasons. i wasn’t listening, i was still pushing, trying to fit an idea i thought was good onto a character that had his own personality. so, i think i’ve finally got that straightened out. or, rather, he’s finally got me straightened out.
have to keep moving.
