the whole story from Jose’s 1st person point of view has given me some fresh insights into vital parts of the story.

Meanwhile, life goes on and I have just read a very encouraging article in the ETA Notes (English Teacher’s Association). The short story anthology project, Tales from the Castle, that I worked on at Duncraig Senior High School in 2010 and 2011 is still flourishing. In fact it is going from strength to strength with my good friend and colleague, Norman Jorgensen, filling the writer-in-residence role this year. Congratulations to everyone involved in this innovative and worthwhile program.
