I was one of those journalism students taught to not use "said". thanks so much for that info! I've been watching that in all my reading lately and can't believe I never noticed that before - how much it is used, and by the top selling christian fiction authors, too! To ask a question? I was wonderi...

I took a little liberty: :D “Honey, are sure it won’t really gross you out?” Tina flipped her hair and turned sideways to view her reflection in the latest seafoam Michael Kors. “Oh puleeeze, MOM!” Jocelyn huffed, jockeying for position I front of her mom’s mirror. She whipped off the top of her “po...

future discussions

For future classes??? There seems to be alot of pieces, especially in the beginning categories where the writers use the first person POV. Obviously, it is appropriate at times, but more often it can give the piece a less than professional flavor, as if it was taken out of a personal journal, rather...

comments

:D I so love this - it is so much fun! Here's my attempt: Jan trudged through the doorway of her large and now too-empty home. She allowed the Luis Vuitton satchel to slide to the floor and sagged against the wall. Raising an aching limb, she began to peel the pewter sandals from her throbbing feet....

homework

Thanks so much for doing this class! Am I too late for homework for the first class? Do you have a time limit? My choice is from Tracie Peterson's A Fragile Design: "William Thurston hunkered down in a rickety chair near the rear of Neil's Pub. His gaze remained fixed on the door as he hoisted a tan...

Thanks to all the "sons of encouragement"

:P Thanks, IAM4HIM - I really needed to read your comments. It's a great reminder - its true - I get ministered often by entries that aren't on the winner list.

Hi! I just found that this class existed! YEA! I so enjoyed this. Maybe two examples (from film?) A recent Lifetime Two-Part movie "Man Eater". You know the plots - the couple is at the altar and the wedding is stopped because one or both decide they really still love the one that got (or is getting...
