Part of the reason why I chose to be in this class in the first place was so that I could force myself to write even though the last time I seriously sat down to work on my stories was more than 2 years ago. So far, I’ve had a great time with writing short stories. My time with my friends has taught me that anything can be a story and the assignments that I’ve done so far have only further cemented that. My life managed to just sync up with the class at certain times. My story about the group that went drinking was actually something that happened the week the assignment was due, and only 24 hours before I actually wrote the assignment. I did not actually write everything that happened but there probably won’t be a prompt that allows me to. This sync has not only made writing my assignments easier but also gave me a solid notepad to refer to when I begin retelling any story to my friends in a call.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: 1 to 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation through email each week. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email.
