Pain update


I don’t really like the tentative title of this novella. Yes, it’s about a type of pain, but that isn’t very descriptive. Plus, every time I think of it I think of Marcy Italiano’s Pain Machine, which is totally different, but now connected in my mind. So, I have to find a different title. But, be that as it may, I’ve spent a couple of the wee hours of the morning hard at work on the book. Look at this:

About half of that is tonight’s effort.

Today, my school schedule came in the mail. I’m not in love with it, as I have no electives, other than that reading class for AP juniors and seniors. Worse, I suspect this is due to the fact no new English teachers have been hired to replace the four we lost, meaning the students are getting very few English electives to choose from.

Here’s the lineup for the first semester:
1st — Plan
2nd — English 3
3rd — Comprehensive Reading
4th — English 2
5th — English 3

Big change second semester:
1st — English 2
2nd — English 3
3rd — Comprehensive Reading
4th — English 2
5th — Plan

No freshmen, but I’m guaranteed to see a lot of my problem kids from last year and from summer school in those sophomore classes. Fun, fun!
