Master Class 2013 Fall Semester 6

October 30, 2013 Master Class Writing 18

Storch-BadgeStudents seem to be dropping like flies around here. Was it something I said? The day I forgot to wear a bra? My breath? Whatever the reason, participation is low, but that only gives the Professor more time to revel in the delightful work of those who do link up. Our last prompt came from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. All assignments began with the first line from that novel: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

Wisper wrote a story about a diary insert and leaves an open ending that will haunt your mind long after you finish reading it.

The Professor combined three prompts for a classic vampire tale that’s worth dying for.

Eric’s story about a girl named Anna and an old Walkman started something new for him and should be read before reading the rest of the serial in progress. I asked Eric to pick any book, open to page 100, and give me the 10th line from the page. His response was:

Master-Class-chalkboard-14

For this assignment, I want to challenge you to begin or end your stories with this line. You have until Tuesday, November 5, 2013 at 9 pm EST to link up.

The link-up is live.

Ready? Set? Write!

    Yay! I’m in! Also, it may have helped my kick my ass into going through with this challenge, but I had mentally recorded Nov. 2 in my mind for the deadline. This morning I got up at 6 am with the story reading to be typed… So I’m early!

It's YOUR write side, too! Let's hear it!
