  2. Never have I ever stuck gum under a desk
  3. Never have I ever sent a mean email in response to a rejection from a literary journal.
  4. Never have I ever ridden an animal.
  5. Never have I ever said a brutal comment in a critique group.
  6. Never have I ever binged an entire series in one day
  7. Never have I ever lied about my opinion of a story in a critique group.
  8. Never have I ever climbed in/out of a window.
  9. Never have I ever hated one of my fellow editor’s picks for the journal.
