So over the weekend, I sent out a bunch of emails to local schools, asking if they’d like for me to come visit and speak to some classes.
Then yesterday, I do a post on bullying, and I mention that I let people cheat off my tests in seventh grade.
Not my smartest move.
(Not that I got called on it or anything. I’m just saying. This is one of those things that occurs to me in the middle of the night.)
I despise cheating. I don’t even like cheat codes in games. (Except The Sims. You totally need more Simoleans to set up a sweet pad.) It feels like a lazy shortcut. If you’re going to cheat, why bother?
In Spark, one of the Merrick brothers gets caught cheating, and he has to deal with the fallout from that. He has his reasons (just like I had my reasons back in seventh grade), but it’s still wrong.
Have any of you been caught cheating? Have you ever cheated and gotten away with it? How did you feel about it?
Later this week, I’m going to do a post on working with an editor. (Hi, Alicia! *waves*)
