The June writing topics were:
- In the distance I could hear the roar of the jeep
- He parked the car where he had a clear view of the house
- "wickedness and sin" said (name) theatrically
We generally start the class with a quick writing challenge. We have been looking at the senses and how to describe them to add to our stories. This month the sense was taste, and some class members took the opportunity to write some sentences and share these with the class as well as their stories.
Events in our lives are often the catalyst for our writing, and this month was no different. One of the stories was brought to life after seeing what looked like an unopened parcel in a rubbish bin around the lake. A number of stories dealt with breakdown of family relationships. Unsurprisingly, there was also mention of COVID19 effects.
We will enjoy being able to meet up again for our July class. This is on 12 July. The topics for the class are:
- He limped along…
- The feeling was comfortable as a daydream
- He wished he could believe it
We will be sharing the stories via email ahead of the class, allowing time to read and prepare feedback for discussion when we meet.
