I recently had the opportunity to be the guest on Colin Gallagher’s fabulous show, Minechat. We took a tour of my most recent published project, Chang’an. I shared the experience with my students just yesterday. Even though I told them that I would be sharing their work with others, I don’t think they realized it until we watched part of the interview.
They sat in dead silence. Afterward, I once again reminded them why I push them so hard to become better writers. We spent a great deal of time getting their writing in a condition to publish and I think they made the connection after watching the video and hearing comments from visitors.
We are off to our next project, each period is recreating a medieval English village, which will include even more writing and some screencasting.
