Some guy in my sf class came to me after class today--I've never talked to him before--and told me he was terrified of getting his story critiqued and would I look at it for him and help him figure out causal chain and character goal and stuff?  I thought that was pretty cool.  It's pretty good writing, too. 

There are some students in that class who are brutal, and while a lot of the feedback is well thought out and insightful, a lot of it isn't constructive at all.  So glad I went through Odyssey first, or I probably would have decided that this critique stuff was not for me.

Yeah, I actually had another point to add, erased the original, started a new one, then said, "Aw, hell, it's getting late and I'm an old lady. I'm going to bed!" I hope you got to read what I put down originally. I stand by it.

And yes, Jeanne did whip us into shape. I actually mentally edited an e-mail someone sent me today. I was like, "That's the wrong word there, and that's grammatically incorrect there." Argh!

You should've taken longer fiction. this class is so much better (besides not having you and gwen in it). People are much nicer and respectful and most of the class are actually really good writers.

I think the sci-fi class is out of control. I blame kk. It's all his fault.

I'm coming to get you in 2 hours!!! HEHEHHEHHEHEHEHEHEHE.

Did you get my "I lied" e-mail???

I'm not at the apt. I'm watching cells grow in the lab. At 11 at night. Ew. (And writing 2 papers, both of which are under control now.) I'll meet you all at Roads when I get out.

Tell him that humanity would be better served should he become a car wash attendant rather than a writer. Err, this is MIT... Umm, tell him he should be come a quantum computer attendant.

You could be the next Harlan. It takes decades, get busy.
