Let’s Write!

Scribblers!

It’s time to kick off the new school year and get started.

Every student every year has to submit an application to participate in clubs. Applications will open on August 19th. This is the last email I will send to last year’s members. Now I will only send updates to students who reapply for the club.

You can submit your application here: https://flvs.net/myflvs/get-involved/join-a-club

 

Our first meeting will be September 3rd at 7pm EST. You will receive the link once you submit your application.

 

I will be out of the office Aug 17-21. If you need anything while I’m gone, you can contact Mrs. Kruppenbacher at akruppenbacher@flvs.net.

I’m looking forward to writing with you this year!

Summer Break!

The blog is on hiatus for the summer. We’ll be back in August. Enjoy your summer!

Looking Back at CWC by Cheyenne

     Florida is famous for its perpetually warm days, and infamous for its sweltering summers. With summer comes beach trips, theme park visits, and vacation for public school kids, which also means a break for clubs. Though I will have to wait uncomfortably for August to come around, I will contentedly reminisce on all the lovely things I have learned about this year in writing. 

     Upon joining back in 2013, I feel that I have grown in my talent in my short amount of time here. I have learned about NaNo and NaPoWriMo, which I would not have discovered so easily without being in this club. The short story workshops in March are my favorite activity. As a writer, I can never imagine throwing away something I have written. I take out my works from time to time and read them, pieces ranging from the quick word sprints we do in meetings to short stories I have written for club activities. Each piece is different in the format and the maturity. 

     Because I joined during the summer of 2013 (just catching the final meeting), I had no way of being able to participate for the next few months. That was when I discovered the editing section and the little note offering students the chance to be editors (this was before the Editorial Board came along). I took the opportunity as soon as I saw it and edited my first piece that summer. I was elated to be doing this since I have never been given the chance to do something like this before. Overtime, I have discovered that most writers either hate or tolerate editing, but I have always been the type that loves it. It gives me pleasure proofreading another’s work because I have the opportunity to be someone else’s critic other than my own. In doing so, I have found that I am a very meticulous editor. No fixable part goes unfixed under my eyes. Of course, this has followed me around in my own editing processes, which I’m actually pretty proud about. I sometimes refer back to my own editing notes to see how I viewed another’s fixable section when editing my own pieces. 

     Though I will miss doing my favorite activities every other Thursday, I shall be patient and wait until August. Time tends to move faster than we realize, so I’m not wishing my life away. But I will probably binge-watch this year’s recordings (yes, I do save those and when I am in my twenties or thirties, I will still be watching them) if YouTube does not satisfy an entertainment or writing crave. Have a lovely summer, CWC!
