Writing contest: For one of the July 21 slots, let’s each write one paragraph which could be the beginning of a story. We’ll read them to the group, and vote on which one is best, with discussion of why.
Nick was asked to write 5 short articles with photos for his railfan magazine. It is a paying job.
Dylan received a request to reissue one of his older stories.
Kris got a job. Although it isn’t as an author, she says she will still have time to write.
Bob is rewriting his short story and has Chapter 2 done.
I’m sure we won’t agree on our paragraph contest. I’ll repeat the link to 355 opinions on what makes a good first paragraph.
Tony offered this semi-educational, humorous look at the History of English in 10 Minutes.
If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
