Creative Writing Week #2

3429306_origWe had some amazing stories read today in class and we welcomed a new classmate.

Our collective group has an incredible depth of experience to draw from and I’m seeing some common themes emerge.  Strength with a generous dose of hope and humor seems to be the common thread binding our various stories together.

We had surprise twists, irony, foreshadowing, laughter and even some tears. I enjoyed hearing and reading all the stories and I’m excited to see them broken down into elements next week. Thank you everyone for another excellent class.

In the meantime, Laura from class has a few blogs she finds time to work on when not coming up with fantastic stories. I’d like to share her blog, Where Pretty Little Bluebirds Fly.
