Back To School

On Saturday morning I am supposed to give a talk on writing fiction at the Muharraq Secondary School for Girls. This will be my very first such talk. I’ve never stood in front of a group of teenage students and addressed them before!!! This is gonna be fun.

The ‘talk’ will mainly focus on my background, work experience and writing career and shed light on the elements of writing and suchlike. I will also be reading a short story or two throughout the event.

I’m actually looking forward to it. With some luck, I won’t screw it up.

Good luck to you! I taught (even tho you're not teaching) when I first moved to Bahrain and it was soooo hard at first - getting up in front of students... but it's gets ok real quick.

You're really good at describing and getting your point across -- you'll do well. I'm excited to hear all about it. What a great opportunity to get ppl interested in writing. Much kudos to you!
