Training a new Rep in a matter of breaths. Productive day, to say the least, and more than productive but one of significant and exacted character development for me. Tonight lecturing, know my direction. Fixation on the story, telling one and writing one, reacting to one. I must commit to logging everything, this semester. In and most notably and imperatively outside the classroom.
Starting with a question, tonight. What’s narration….? Won’t have them take out notebooks or journals. Not immediately. Want them to relax. Settle in. Write in as few places as possible, note to this writer’s self. Two journals to right, Sonic and Germany. No laptop at moment except for this one, and the computer at home, the one in SRJC office.
Sipping coffee. Had it made extra strong. The day has soared by me. Adding Germany journal to stack of materials to take into training room. Or, meeting room. Same room in which I meet the Reps, everyday. In mode, posture and mood and M character of characters—the writer, essayist, and I guess speaker. Educator. Idea purveyor. This coffee is most profitably and pervasively working.
