So far, I liked writing short stories but sometimes I overthink so much that I don’t really know from where to start or how to end the story. I noticed that it is necessary to condense a large amount of information in a few paragraphs and this requires a large dose of narrative creativity, which sometimes I wasn’t able to find. Sometimes what we have very clear in our head becomes ambiguous when others read it. Also I was afraid that I go too far in detail or fall short or use the wrong words and couldn’t get a very clear story. I noticed that the opinion of other people is of vital importance to make good corrections to our writing. It really helped make improvements and add new things that I didn’t notice that was necessary to the story.
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.
