Master Class 2013: Man & Cat

May 1, 2013 Master Class Writing 25

Attention, students! Please take a look at the chalkboard. Your new assignment for this week has been posted!

Your assignment last week was to use the line “She took off her glasses and squinted at the white hot sky, vaguely wondering if it was already on its way” from Clive Barker’s The Great and Secret Show in the middle of your story, not within the first two or last two paragraphs. The work turned in was extraordinary!

Carrie linked up with a story about an apprentice scryer that has beautiful visuals with Dreamspell.

Shannon set the bar with Fissures, a tale of metamorphosis that will awe you.

Words with Teeth rolled in with a very visual tale of a woman on the other side of the sun in Helios 12.

But this week, our old professor, Eric Storch, stunned us with an incredible peek into his comic book, Easy Money. This was enough to earn him the privilege of selecting this week’s assignment. Your assignment this week is:


Your stories must contain this line in its entirety and you can either choose to use as the opening line or the closing line in your story.

You have until Tuesday, May 7 at 9:00 PM EST to hand in your assignment.

The linkup is now live.

Ready? Set? Write!

    I agree that the graphic is very cool, but seriously Storch, what the hell? That’s hilarious 😉

  4. Carrie says:

    Oh, that graphic rocks!!

    And I agree…Storch, WTF? Hmmm….I think I might bring back Rachel for this assignment 😉

    Also, it is very disconcerting to me that all the chalk are *exactly* the same length…
