Master Class 2013-Hide and Seek Carriage

Storch-Badge Good afternoon, class! It’s time to take your seats and discuss last week’s assignment. You were to use the line “It had been better when he had been hidden” from Douglas Adam’s The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul in the 4th (or multiple of) position in your story. Five of you rose to the challenge.

Troy P responded to his prompt with a tale of spousal abuse that will make you feel for Leonard and inspire a desire to smack someone.

Tara toyed with our emotions in a most excellent way with Chasing Ghosts.

The Dragon gave us another exciting piece to his Easy Money story with Old Mitchell Street that set the grading scale so high this week.

Carrie gave us something to think about with a new excerpt from her Rachel series.

The Professor spun a mystery with an ending that leaves you guessing in To Catch a Thief.

But it was David’s sinister tale of a knight’s First Watch that stuck with me this week. I asked David to choose any book, go to the 8th chapter, and give me the 1st line of the 3rd paragraph. Your new assignment for this week is:


And since someone left a sweet surprise on the chalkboard for the Professor, I’m going to cut you a break this week. You can use this line as either a first line or the last line of your story, or smack dab in the middle. The placement is your choice, so be wise and use it well.

You have until Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 9:00 pm EST to hand in your assignments.
