Jan's Poetry Class--MERRY CHRISTMAS!

These lessons, by one of our most consistent FaithWriters' Challenge Champions, should not be missed. So we're making a permanent home for them here.

Jan,
Just want to say that your poetry class challenged me to try something new (I tend to stay in my comfort zone). I know I wouldn't have attempted it on my own. I'm so glad (and grateful) you had them.

Since some of the beginner and intermediate level writers don't visit the message boards, would Scott let you post something on the main "Writing Challenge" page?

Where is Jan
I'm a fan
of the poetic word

and the other
kind of writing

Hurry back
don't be slack
Cos' I need to learn

See you soon

Soon!

Plan to work on the next class on Monday, but I have a busy week ahead of me. Don't hold me to it.

Not a newbie, but I love your classes and all you've been able to teach this "oldie."

Jan's Class

Postby browniesgal » Sat Jan 09, 2010 8:41 pm

Remember Field of Dreams? Build it and we will come. Being stuck in beginners forever with friends rising to the top like butter in a churn, I know I would love to have more beginner instruction. It could be advertized in every forum title and suggested when we comment on the challenges. I don't think I have any poet bones in me, but I still have read all your past and current stuff. You are such a blessing to FW. Thanks so much. Ruth Brown :shiney2

I'll become a newbie again if it will help keep me in the class.

... or I could just look through the window and wish.

Your classes really are helpful to beginners, masters, and all levels in between. I hope you continue to welcome all writers into your classes, even if it is designed mostly to help the lower levels improve. I still need to improve as well.

I had something really memorable to write here but I forgot what it was.

Folks, it'll be a while. My husband had emergency surgery Sunday night, and will probably be in the hospital for at least a week.

He's going to be fine--thanks be to God--but I won't have a lot of time for writing a new class. Be patient with me, please.

"The dog [or cat] ate my lesson plans" would have sufficed!

Seriously though, I'll be praying.
