WRITE YOUR LIFE...AND A LITTLE EXTRA

Life can be stranger than fiction! Our lives are filled with ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Remember, elaborating isn't lying. IT'S FICTION! Paper, pencil, and a sense of excitement are the only requirements.

We will brainstorm, play games, and begin to write. And the best part is that there are no grades, only fun together!

We'll chat about writing fiction and even nonfiction using life experiences as a basis. It doesn't have to be something major. Can you get an idea for a story about the leaf that fell from a tree? Or the time you hid your mom's birthday present? Or even the time your little brother left the house with his underwear on his head? I bet you can. And it may not be the obvious idea.

And of course, if there are any questions about being an author, I will answer whatever I can.

Life is filled with ideas. We just have to dig a bit to find them.
