I'm slightly more than halfway through my six week workshop. I have three observations to share.
One, Writing: I'm at the frustrating place where I've learned enough that I now know a story idea is not going to work before I write it, but I don't yet know enough to fix it so the idea does work. Good thing there's another three weeks of class.
Two, Living: I haven't regularly slept on a twin mattress in a couple of years; living in a dorm for a few months requires it. But in those years I've apparently forgotten the skill of rolling over without losing the sheet. Every time I turn over sheet, blanket, everything, slides right on off my butt. Very disconcerting.
Three, Taxes: New Hampshire does not appear to have sales tax. I bought a book yesterday and the cashier rang me up for precisely the amount printed on the book cover. It feels so odd to buy a week's worth of groceries, then look at the receipt and see Total $48.32, Tax $0.00. They really take this live free or die stuff seriously up here.
