Challenge #21 - Frightening, Confusing, & Unbelievable! [Jul. 16th, 2005|04:49 pm]
Write Like the Wind

Tell the story of the single most frightening, most confusing, or most unbelievable thing (or all three, if you want to be ambitious) that has ever happenened to you.

Things to keep in mind:

* Avoid saying or explaining how you felt. Instead, focus on what you did, said, saw and heard (and smelled or tasted, if those senses are appropriate).

* Tell your story as directly, as simply, and as straightforwardly as possible. Don't try to add any extra atmosphere or emotions, or any other embellishments. Avoid tricks or gimmicks. Simply show exactly what happened to you.

* If you wish, you may write the piece in the third person, with "he" or "she" as the subject instead of "I". You may even make up a character to be your protagonist if you like, but the story must still be a substantially true account of something that happened to you, and your character must behave much or entirely as you did in that situation.

Have fun!

poetry fans! :) :) [Jun. 4th, 2005|05:11 pm]
Write Like the Wind


My grandmother's dying wish was to publish a book of her poetry, and the day before she died she was told from the publisher that her dream was going to come true. 2 months after she passed away, the book is published.

If we sell 500 hardcopy books, it will appear on the shelves of Barnes and Noble. So please, consider buying this book. It truley is amazing, and it would mean alot to the memory of my Nanny.

I think this book is amazing. It is poetry about spirituality, love, and life. I have grown up around my grandmothers poetry, and I have always found it so emotionally moving and inspiring. I honestly think that others will love it just as I have.
