So, today I had a Skype Video Chat with Forest High School (which is, incidentally, the rival high school of Vanguard HS, where I attended 9th and 10th grade). It was a lot of fun, though it’s a much different dynamic than if you are in a room with the students since you can’t really see them and gauge their reactions to your babbling.
Not that I ever actually intend to babble. But it happens. And could someone please poke me with a cattle prod every time I say “um”?
At any rate, I hope they had a good time. I did (even though my hair really didn’t behave…I swear it has a mind of it’s own and it always goes kind of funky if there’s a camera involved)!
They asked some good questions about writing and getting published and so I wanted to kind of reiterate what I said.
On writing process…here’s something I’d written up before about my writing process. (Basically, I outline). And I try to do some “butt in chair” time every day. My goal is always a 1000 words. Sometimes I don’t hit that (er, like yesterday), but other days I knock it out of the park.
Oh, and they wanted to see The Max, but he was out at a park with his babysitter. So here’s a gratuitous picture of my little guy:
