At the party we had 8 writers show up. 7 of us started in Jan. and one person didn't start until maybe 2 months ago. Of that number I am the only one to never miss a class (15 classes before party). Today we had class 16 and 5 of us showed up. There seems to be a lot of just chatter about a lot besides writing. I found that my writing today was not the normal twist of an ending that I mostly used before. I have kind of decided that I am going to drop out maybe at the end of this month. A little was said about the up coming talent show but I would have thought we should have talked a lot more since it is in 2 weeks and nothing has been decided about who will read or what they will read. I had sent an email after the party saying that I had changed my mind about reading at the talent show as I didn't really have anything to read. She didn't respond to the email for a couple of days and then didn't really respond to what I had written but only repeated info she sent in another email to the class about us meeting today and the homework assignment. She also teaches a dance class at the senior center and has been working with them on a dance routine for weeks with special practices each week. It doesn't feel like she is that interested in having a writer's class in the talent show...Funny that it was lightly raining this morning and then sunny when we had class but a big thunder storm this evening.
Hope all of you are staying safe and dry where you are at.
