I Am Taking an Online Short Story Class

because I want to see how

Someone Else An Expert teaches

how to write a story.  A class I’ve taught for years.

Class started with a joke an example of structure but

the joke wasn’t funny. Proust,

Hemingway and Kafka were there  because this is a writing class

the punchline wasn’t actually a punchline but maybe

I’ll start the next class I teach with Mel Brooks

or my mother’s favorite joke  and maybe I’ll actually

write a new story because of the Expert and the Online Story Class.
