Master Class 2013 Fall Semester 5

Master Class 2013 Fall Semester 5
October 17, 2013 9 Comments Master Class, Writing Stephanie Ayers

Storch-BadgeThe past week, Kir gave us an interesting prompt from The Law of Similars by Chris Bohjalian. The line she chose came from the second paragraph of the second chapter of the book. The line was: “And so here are the aromas that conjure for me the beginning of the end: __________ because that’s the oil she put in the diffuser.” To make it challenging, the line couldn’t be used to end or begin the story, but the author had liberty to fill in the blank as pertained to their story.

The turnout was small but the stories were top-notch.

Professor SAM churned out a darker tale of how things don’t always look as sweet as they appear with her Summer Sunday’s at Mimi’s.

Lexy told a thrilling tale of a child sold to Sisters for a favor that ends with a twist you’ll agree is perfect.

Stacey wrote a short but beautiful piece that had every sense I have tingling and I definitely got a good dose of Aromatherapy. I enjoyed it so much I asked Stacey to choose the new assignment. She had her choice of any book and chose Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The book begins with this first line:

There you have it class. You have until Wednesday, October 23, 2013, at 6:00 am to link up your assignments. Please use this line to begin your stories.

What are you waiting for? The link up is now live.

Ready? Set? Write!
