LITERATURE & REALITY?: Les Miserables and Workshops

This is just too funny:

You’re Les Miserables!
by Victor Hugo
One of the best known people in your community, you have become something of a phenomenon. People have sung about you, danced in your honor, created all manner of art in your name. And yet your story is one of failure and despair, with a few brief exceptions. A hopeless romantic, you’ll never stop hoping that more good will come from your failings than is ever possible. Beware detectives and prison guards bearing vendettas.
Take the Book Quiz at the Blue Pyramid.

Thanks to Lisa at Eudaemonia, who by the way, has a posting on her recent Creative Writing seminar/workshop experiences that made me laugh even harder:  While she found it enlightening to free-write, that is, being given anywhere from five to fifteen minutes to immediately write down a particularly directed scenario for a particular element of writing, and did a wonderful job of it, it brought me back to a CW class where without thinking I asked the professor to please be quiet.

    I missed seeing this post when you did it. It is so funny that you mention asking a professor to be quiet during a free write. My post was getting pretty long winded so I left out that part of my experience. Once or twice there were people talking during the sessions and I bit my tongue but wanted to scream at them to shut the hell up!

    Exactly! Only because it was the professor himself that kept adding information aloud, I had to be polite.
