A Turning Point

| Appleton, WI, USA | Learning | March 29, 2017

(In my final semester of college I take fiction writing as I have finished most of my required courses. Since it’s an advanced course it simply consists of writing short stories or novel chapters independently then meeting to critique each other’s work. One day I am going to class and meet one of my classmates leaving the building.)

Me: “Did class get cancelled?”

Classmate: “Nah. It’s just that we’re not discussing any of my work today, so I don’t feel like going.”

Me: “What if everybody else had the same idea when it was your turn to have a story discussed?”

Classmate: “That’s a good point…”

(He actually turned around and went back in, which was nice.)
