They say that Clarion groups can "go feral" during Week 4, but I think we mostly just got very, very tired.
I wrote a whole story about vampires and then abandoned it for a fairy tale. I had to write it in three days to make the deadline. My laptop wasn't open to make a wall, but so I could try to write during breaks...
Kij was the master of structure. Seriously, she could hone right in on issues within each story so quickly.
Dinner at El Porto! I had a lovely fish taco.
Writing stories became progressively more difficult as the summer wore on. I somehow managed to make it through Week 4 with a more modest tale about a mother witch.
Many instructors organized additional lectures on topics of interest. That Thursday Kij talked a bit about the importance of making a five year plan in the Common Room.
I was super excited for Comic Con and a visit from my sister!
Some post-critique thoughts.
OK I know that says Week 5 at the top but this is Sunday at the end of Week 4. Waiting around in the Common Room for Nalo Hopkinson, who was kind enough to swing by after a very busy weekend at Comic Con.
