Hi Lauren , I don’t know if it is too late to join for the feedback session. September story.
Here is Linda’s story.
Here is my story for the September feedback session. (second attempt at submitting it.)
Tom, what an interesting bit of information, loved it. I have often wondered about the “behind the scenes” info about this type of movie, whether it is for real or merely inprovised (contrived). Thank you for all the details. Will send you detailed write-up in Buddy Group.
This story is from the Challenge.
Here is my feedback story. It is a short one from the challenge. The prompt was to write about a bad smell associated with a trip/travel. All feedback welcome.
Please put me with others outside my buddy group.
I feel like we should have t-shirts that say “I survived the challenge!” 🙂
This is my story for the anthology. It’s a second draft, has been through one feedback session, and is now expanded to 1500 words. Please put me in a group with others who have posted anthology stories.
Terry, beautifully written story. Your descriptive details, both human and environment, are fabulous. Yes, you are a gifted storyteller. I had a similar experience with teaching. Me teach, no way. I didn’t like children. Got my degree in Zoology and planned to do research. Then I married, had five and was snookered into helping with a Kindergarten class. At 37 entered Graduate school and received MA in Education, Reading Specialist. Taught 30 years and loved every minute of it.
How did Austin die, so sad.
Dear Jackie, I love that you were “snookered” into helping with a kindergarten class! I feel a little that way about my years as a teacher. As a librarian, I didn’t have to go back to school, and though I did give classes in computer use and technology for several years, no one suggested that I get a degree in Education (I did take several online courses). I can’t say I loved every minute, but I loved the children. Austin was killed when he lost control while riding an All Terrain Vehicle off-road, an activity he loved.
I seek your input before I submit it for a final edit before I submit it for final editing. Thanks, Vern
My story for feedback. I appreciate any criticism and feedback I can get. It is part of my memoir and is going to be published.
Here’s the story that I intend for the anthology. Since it’s going to be published, I will take more than the usual criticism. Normally, I just want to know if the story is getting across. But lay it on me this time, if you wish.
For the feedback session. put me with anyone.
Here’s a short one from the challenge, version 2.
This is my story for the anthology. I would like detailed feedback. Thanks in advance.
Everyone, Another challenge is done. Rockstar or not, it’s been a fun week. My emotions ran the gamut with this challenge. One of my main concerns is getting back to everyone. We are becoming HUUUUUUUGE. Therefore, it’s hard to respond to all of my fellow writers. I appreciate the responses to my stories. But (considering my lifestyle workload) it’s hard to read all of the stories (let alone respond to them) without getting an assistant. Sorry, but I can’t afford an assistant. Hope you all understand. I’m going back to bed Huggz to the ladies. Handshakes to the men. “God-bless”… Read more »
Thank you again for your humor, we need it.
You deserve some rest and relaxation, John. Good work on the challenge this past week. And yes, I think you are a Rock Star Writer, not just by metrics, but by attitude. 🙂
Hooray, again I did it, successfully posted a story, Praise the Lord, he’s getting me there.
An old love story to tickle and relax our challenged and very weary minds. Enjoy.
Here is Norma’s story.
Here is my story. It is for the anthology. Has not yet been expanded to 1500 words. Feedback welcome. Especially considering whether the introduction is needed of is I should begin with the Bag Lady story.
