Overheard at a YA Conference

Two girls are leaving my Story Avenue session. One turns to the other & in a perfect mix of valley-girl & teacher tone, says, “I just knew she’d be awesome as soon as I sat down.” Grabs her friend by the arm and continues, “Did you see how detailed her notes were?”

Lol.

And kids think you stop doing homework after high school/university.

(From YABS’ website): Story Avenue is a writing conference held annually at the Centre for Education in downtown Edmonton. Participants are Grade 5, 6, and 7 students from the Edmonton City Centre Schools.

I’m back & about to do some writing, then work on the session for dream interpretation (Sunday)!
