Today's open mic was magic. Thank you for taking this class seriously (I know you did because you're here on the blog after the class is over).

You might be wondering: NOW WHAT? 

I don't know what's going to happen to your blog. You decide. Are you going to keep writing? Are you going to delete it?

It will eventually get deleted from the main page. I will eventually add it to the PAST WRITERS page with those who came before you.

If you want to continue writing and continue being part of a community, try Writers Paris Underground. Or ask your mom if she'll read your stuff.

Thanks for the memories.
