Update from Last Night

Before going to bed, Gayle Brandeis, my writing teacher and last night's vigil organizer, responded to my email. I was afraid that I was saddling her with my personal life, but she's in full support of my life decisions, a good thing (if not surprising, given her progressive streak and support for my character Sarah).

I am glad to have gotten to know her, and look forward to working with her in the future both in the writing world and the activist world. (And I'll make sure that Perfect Girl gets published, so that a signed copy will end up in her hands - just as her The Book of Dead Birds had a signed copy end up in mine.)

Now I need to come clean to the rest of the class, and that will happen when it ends.
