Tuesday I went to a highschool and spoke to a group of around 80 teenagers about writing. It was actually the same highschool where my father (who has since retired) was once head of the English department, so that was cool.
I was really nervous.
I hadn't spoken to teenagers before.
Know what I learned?

And a lot like talking to kids.
Okay yes there are differences between all three groups, and I'll elaborate on them in my next post (because I think they are interesting), but this post is a moment of revelation post.
So this is the revelation:
I'm starting to think people are just people.
Yup, pretty sure . . .
