Master Class 2013 Fall Semester 7

Master Class 2013 Fall Semester 7
November 6, 2013 9 Comments Master Class, Writing Stephanie Ayers

Storch-BadgeThe cold weather must be driving people indoors because class participation has picked up (yay!), either that or the excellent prompt by the old Professor Storch was just that good. I’d prefer to think it was a combination of both and hopefully, class will begin to grow weekly. I’d like to extend a challenge today to all those who follow my blog (and like my posts) to try the Master Class prompt this week. I’d really love to see you linking up!

I’ve rambled enough, I see. Wake up, class! 😉

Last week, Eric chose Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonflight to get the 10th line from the 100th page of. The line was “She rubbed her palms against her thighs in anticipation of the challenge.” The assignment was to use that line to begin or end your story.

The Professor started a new creepy serial titled Send in the Clowns.

Eric continued his latest by linking up Part Five of his newest serial, L’esprit de l’escalier.

Wisper shared the ending of her NaNoWriMo project with A Prophecy Fulfilled.

Tara turned an assignment that will make you question the power of mind over matter.

Lexy (also participating in the great NaNoWriMo this month) churned out a clever story of a Castle, Stormed.

However it was Marie Nicole’s tail of a woman finding confidence through the memory of a childhood game that went to the head of the class this week. I asked her to choose any book and give me the last line. Her choice:



Your challenge this week is to use this line to end your stories. You have until Tuesday, November 12, at  9 pm EST to do it.

Ready? Set? Write!

The linkup is now live.
