On the plus side, I guess I check Facebook way less, which is good. Because my writing blog is more educational than Facebook.
Today, I bought "On Writing" by Sol Stein. It's supposed to be a pretty decent craft book. I visited my high school too, and my history teacher (who also writes) assured me every chapter was mind-blowing. So he better not be lying, because now I fully expect a religious experience upon reading this thing.
More importantly, he said he would be my critique partner. I've been looking for one, and I feel happier having someone I know than a random over the internet. He's finished his first novel too, so we agreed to swap. And he promised to be very critical. I'm a bit scared, because I have a thin skin for that kind of thing, but I need someone to be mean so I can get better.
My high school teachers are so awesome.
