Nothing like a little gratuitous geek reference.
Well, my admin finally ironed out the issue with my fifth period class, and now it’s a much more manageable 35 kids. Mind you, I’d prefer it was more like 25, but we can’t have everything, and small classes are a rarity these days. But the kids seem pretty good, and even after lunch they got right to work for me, so all is well, in the end.
I’m hoping I can get some writing done tonight. We’ll see.
First week has gone pretty well. I enjoy my classes, except for one. It’s not the class’ fault–it’s the administrations. You see, I have 52 students registered in the class, in a classroom with only 35 desks. It’s a fire hazard, and illegal. They’re trying to fix it, but these things can take time, and part of it is getting a teacher hired, which takes a while, sadly. Hopefully it’ll get ironed out before the week is over.
I think the War for Earth plot is getting adjusted. It started out as a trilogy starring Teren Hunt (Name may change, of course). Now it looks like it might be a book starring Teren, with a trilogy set a few decades later starring someone else. Not sure. If that does work best, then I’d probably shelf this novel once it’s done until I’ve got the others written, as I’m not sure most publishers would publish a prequel novel when the main sequence is unpublished. But, again, that’s getting ahead of myself; I need to finish this book first. Hell, I might change my mind and make the whole series about Teren again. Or maybe his niece… hmm…
