We then started the class with a challenge to write 1-2 sentences on the topic of “The Skatepark”.
There were some projects over the Christmas break, and the results were shared. One of the challenges was to write a piece that could then be edited and developed over the semester. These were shared, along with ideas as to where the story would go next. It is hoped to publish the final products on the U3A web page in June.
Members of the group were also asked to provide some ideas for topics to be used during the year as prompts for our writing, and these have been collated into a reference document.
Next month, the 2nd Monday is on 11 March, which is the Labour Day holiday. We decided that two months was too long between classes. For those who are available we will meet on 11 March at 2:00pm. Members will select one or more of the following topics:
- Monday was supposed to be the worst day of the week. Today had it beat by a mile.
- After sitting at the same desk for three years, I figured I was beyond seeing anything new. I was wrong.
- Rain turned the narrow path into a stream of mud and dead leaves
