Lots going on today. Here's the agenda.
- Take the quiz over Still Life, Storytelling and Home Movies. We'll continue with how to produce some of our other projects tomorrow.
- Take notes and study Power and Network Connections. Here's how they work.
- Finish your Homework Video if you haven't already.

Want to see my example outline? Here it is.
I will write a story about a math student whose best friend starts hanging out with the troublemakers at school. My main character is afraid to talk about it, because she doesn't want to start a fight, but finally, she decides that her friend's future is more important than being comfortable. She talks to Kimberly about the bad choices she has made.
