WOW, that was fulfilling!

It's not every day I get to teach a creative writing lesson. But an unscheduled student walked into our center tonight begging for "a good writer" to help her with a story she was writing for her English class, and she was shuffled to me. "Are you a good writer?" she asked me. I attempted to transmit every good piece of writing advice I could remember. We talked about good descriptive writing and character development, and the student was incredibly cheerful and receptive.

"You are a good writer," she said at the end of class. "My story is so much better now. Thank you!"

It's hard not to be flattered by that.
