I need 60,000 words to have a book length memoir. I will be meeting with Edi and the other members of the NJCU Writers Workshop book group in September. I can’t wait to see Cassandra Casella. I messaged her on Facebook. She’s an English teacher at a charter school in NJ. I remember thinking “oh that’s nice and she has her 120 page honors thesis since May 2015. Now she is working on a book too!” I remember Cassandra saying “nice sharing” to me after I’d read from my piece Memories of Me before she left Memoirfest in Decmber 2014 the first memoirfest I went to at Edi’s house. Cassandra is a classmate and someone that has a cool biography. I am looking forward to taking LTED 305 this coming Fall to prepare for the Praxis CORE. I want to be a teacher.
