Writing Workshop - Pt 4

Steering the Craft by Ursula Le Guin 
our workshop textbook

They didn't hate my short story!! I got some really good feedback tonight. The funny thing is, most of the constructive critiques was exactly what I had been beating myself up over the last week. Sadly, I thought I was pushing it on story length when I was really only at about 1/2 of what a short story length typically is. This is good. I can work on the additions with the safety of knowing I have time to develop my characters as I would like to.

Next week is the last class in the first workshop. A couple of people will not be returning. That is sad. I'll miss them. But there will be other equally interesting characters joining, no doubt.
