I am excited to announce my participation in the Word on the Lake Writer's Festival organized by the Shushwap Association of Writers. They invited me because I'm hip and I know about steampunk. I'm so flattered. With some great creative writing classes under my belt I am ready to explore some steampunk character archetypes and inventions. Being a teacher is a great job/ could be a great job when the students want to learn. I'm not good at motivating people to learn, that is a skill in itself. So when I know my class/ audience is ready and willing I get super excited. This event will rock.
