July 8, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

You did catch the new Master Class announcement last week, right? The one that offered you not 1, but 3 new prompts to suit your writing abilities. Today, it’s time for a new weekly word challenge. Last week, Tara offered “hooligan” and a few responded. A.L. Mabry got a new serial started. The Professor wrote

A Little Rivalry Among the Roomies
July 7, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

“Oh yeah?” Bruce said as his burly fingers ripped through Steve’s Raiders jersey. “Well, let’s see what you’ll do about this!” He dropped the tattered jersey at his roommate’s feet. Steve reached up and pulled the Broncos flag off the wall. His fingers gripped it but the felt refused to tear beneath his fingers. “Haha!”

Master Class 2014: Summer School Session 1
July 1, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

Yes, the professor has been very negligent about the Master Class of late. Summers are always hard in this house but now that I’ve taken on the care of my nephew, it’s become a little harder. It seems to be hard for my students too. The last class only had 2 participants. You can read

Life Happens
June 7, 2014 Master Class Stephanie Ayers

I always feel so guilty when I don’t post for awhile. I worry and fret that I’ll lose readers or that, worse, I’ll busy myself out of writing and it will go stale. It happens more than I want. I have 4 children though, and as the end of the school year approaches,  I find

Master Class 2014 Volume XI
May 14, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

I know, I know. The professor is slacking. I suppose if I really want a good turn out, I should go back to this being weekly so people don’t forget. (Cue the Breakfast Club soundtrack floating in and Judd Nelson shooting his fist up in the air as “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t you…forget about me!” plays

April 28, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

It’s the last week of April and Spring Break is over. I don’t know about you, but I am ready to get back to class and the class assignments. It’s been several weeks since we had one, but our last class gave us four creative takes on the prompt provided by Shannon from Les Grossman’s The

Master Class 2014 Volume IX
March 28, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

I finally  got out of that nasty sinus cold, only to get bogged down with life. I apologize that this is so late going out. I gave everyone an extra week to respond to the last prompt which came from Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: “I had just come to accept that

Master Class 2014 Volume VIII
March 12, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

Last week there were two prompts to challenge you. They came from Douglas Adams’ The Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul and Andrew Davidson’s The Gargoyle. “There are some people you liked immediately, some whom you think you might learn to like in the fullness of time, and some you simply want to push

Master Class 2014 Volume VII
March 5, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

Hello class. It was so good to see all the returning faces last week! Steph gave us such a great prompt, hmm? There were no restrictions in the writing last week, just to use the line somewhere in your story. The prompt given came from the middle left page, center line of At Night We Walk

Master Class 2014 Volume VI
February 26, 2014 Master Class,Writing Stephanie Ayers

Welcome class! I do believe our muses took a vacation last week as there were so few assignments linked up. Rebecca led the class last week with this prompt, chosen from Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar: “it was only as the two of us waited for the others in the tomblike morning gloom of the
