Today was our first day with Nancy Kress. She talked for a little under an hour, and I'll at some point post all of my notes from her lecture. A lot of what she covered are basic skills I've been struggling with, but having them in a written list form will, I think, help remind me what I need to work on as I write each story. Sorry this is such a lousy description of today's workshop, but I'm in a bit of a rush to get back to writing.
One last item of note: I went to the store today with the specific purpose of buying a bottle opener. I came home to realize that there was one thing that Mr. Slow-Poke cashier didn't put in the bag with the rest of my groceries. Just guess what item that was! Fucking guess!!
