    • For some reason, I am unable to leave a comment on Blogspot posts. (I think I just don’t know how to enter my WordPress username.) I always get the message in red that my URL Credentials Could Not Be Verified. Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong?

      Anyway…. here’s the reply I tried to leave: I agree with you completely than fiction writing is very challenging. In fact, I am very open with my students about how difficult I find writing short stories. I am just not good at plotting, I tell them. In the past, I’ve used my story, “Knowing Where A Spark Could Lead” from my personal writing blog in class. (I read it aloud, and I took their feedback.) Discussing this story with them revealed some obvious problems…. which I have not fixed yet!!!! Aghghghgh! Thanks for this post!
