The Classroom

I wrote this a while ago.  It is a description of a classroom in a story that I am still working on. I should make a few attempts to rewrite this.  I think I could do better now.

The classroom is set up in a half round amphitheater style.  The instructor stands out in front of the first row.  From there, he or she controls a 3D projection device that can produce images high up above so all the students can easily see them.  There are five rows ranging from a radius of about five feet up to the last row at about 25 feet.  Each row has a continuous seat and table that stretches all the way around.  There are steps on each side of the half circle.  The base for the seats and table are all made from concrete.  The seats are then covered with a soft black plastic material to make them warmer and more comfortable to sit on.  The table top is covered with gray and white stone polished so you can see your reflection.

All this allows for about 45 students to sit comfortably.  The table top is broken into sections about ten feet long.  Two students sit in each section.  Each student has a 3D projection device that can link to the teacher's device and mirror what he or she is displaying.  This is useful if the large projection is hard to see.  The student's device can also display other related information, or anything else the student wants to lookup.  This device is the property of the student.  They take it with them to all classes.

You enter the room at the bottom near the center.

Meditation Post

  I just added something on Patreon that I wrote today. It is a story about meditation. It was just something quick I came up with based on some of my own experience. I'll post a portion of it here. I have meditated many times before, but the last one was very different. I sat down on the floor in front of the couch and crossed my legs, as I often do. I closed my eyes and searched with my mind. I could feel the window and the grass and trees beyond. I could feel the life outside watching me. I tried to reach out further, there was life everywhere. I left my body, as I have done occasionally. My body sat motionless on the floor below me as I floated upwards. I floated up further through the ceiling, glimpsing my attic, then I saw the roof. Slowly I spun around and the night sky came into view. It was a clear dark night, with no moon visible. The stars were all visible, like pinholes in a black sheet. I continued upwards. I could feel life all around me. Below me on the ground, in t

Suspense Story Start

  This is a story I started a while ago and never got back to.  It probably won't end up as a long story, but I would like to finish it. It was part of some practicing I was doing with suspense and adding conflict or setbacks to a story. John heard his mother calling from downstairs. "John, they're here! Come down!" Who was she talking about?  His mother sounded concerned.  Probably dinner guests he had failed to remember.  John was lying on the bottom bunk on his wooden bed.  The yellow undecorated walls of his room surrounding him.  He sat up and slid out of his bed.  He hit his head on something.  There was a loose screw that he had been meaning to tell his dad about. "I think my forehead is bleeding." he said out loud. John walked out into the hall and started towards the bathroom.  Suddenly, his older brother ran out of his room past him towards the stairs. "They are here John.  We need to get downstairs." said his brother. "Who is here?&

Patreon Post and Other Updates

I haven't posted here or on Patreon for several months.  Hopefully this will be the start of some new posts. I posted on Patreon today also. I got an email from Patreon about a writers group that is going to be meeting once a week. This motivated me to post again. I'm also going to try attending those meetings. Hopefully that will keep me motivated to keep writing. That's all for today.
