A Class of Crickets

 Powerpoint. Check. Fun anecdotes and examples. Check. Videos. Check. High hopes of engagement, and meaningful discussion buzz through me like a double espresso shot as I see faces pop into my Zoom window. I will dazzle them, wow them, prove myself worthy of this opportunity to share my love and knowledge of creative writing to this class of almost 10 students! 

Sharing my screen, I am armed and ready with the first discussion prompt. 

“So, what do you all think?” 

cricI smile warmly through the screen into faces that seem preoccupied. This may be a little more difficult than I thought.
