Seven ‘Making Waves’ stories (our topic for March) are now available to all visitors to our web page. I really enjoyed reading these stories - an underlying theme was the anxiety involved and resilience required to 'make waves' and the reinforcement of personal integrity which can result.
April’s topics ‘Anzac Day’ and ‘Taking a risk and winging it’ or ‘Taking the plunge’ are currently being added under password for class members to read and comment briefly upon. Here are some triggers to use when writing comments -
- Did you relate to the story? Did you empathise with the writer?
- Did the story trigger memories for you? Perhaps with an example or two.
- How did you react to the story? How did it make you feel?
Remember, if the monthly topic doesn't work for you, you can always draw from your 'Ideas Piggy Bank' or little book of 'triggers'....(choose two elements from either of these sources and write a story of about 250 words or so on each) or write on a universal topic such as 'The year that made me'; 'New in Town'; or 'Someone who Shaped me'.
