The problem with creative writing
Allow me to use my blog to write down a few notes to myself (so as to make sure I won't forget).
-Names will change. A lot of them. Josh becomes Dan, Cathy becomes Nancy, Jethro becomes Isaac, Zephyr has to change to something else.
-An additional vehicle must be used. It will affectionately be refered to as "The Gideon." It belongs to Peter.
-trite sentences will be removed.
-The sick (absent) teacher will be named "Robert Service (no relation to the poet)"
-"The small town" will be named (douglas coupland, eat your heart out. Canadian lit stays put)
all of these will have bearing on the narrative. It's likely many passages will change. And additional scene will be added to the beginning of the story. Possibly two. This will deal with the larger issue of the major change in focus that occured when I was writing the original (away from romance to the greater plot of the prank).
Seems I've got my work cut out for me.

What a lucky baby.
Also, I love how the first years eemingly never do laundry. Its like, whenever I want, there are four laundry machines just waiting for me! Of course, I hate it when the spin cycle doesn't work in one of them.

Can't - no... sorry... Feudal System.
I mean honestly? Who works at medieval times?
