South Madison Class cancelled due to snow: stay in and write!

The South Madison memoir writing class for 6pm Monday 3/18/13 is cancelled due to our snow… so stay home in your pajamas, curl up with your favorite libation, and write for at least 15 minutes on the following prompt:

“What feels like an ending is often the beginning of something new.”

When did an event occur in your life that caused you to turn onto a new path? Perhaps your family moved, or you entered a new school, or you lost a job or found a new one. Maybe it was someone you met, or something you read, that challenged you to think in a new way and caused your life to branch. (Just read Leigh Hyde’s “Who Do I Kill?” for an example of a book that changed a life!)

Bring your writing to our workshop next week and we’ll discuss. And if you’re a reader of True Stories Well Told who isn’t taking that particular workshop, feel free to write on this prompt and submit your essay for publication on this blog. (Check out my guest writers guidelines here.)



stay in, stay warm, stay well, and stay busy writing!  -Sarah White
