Just completed a week's worth of fun, creativity, beautiful sights, and comfort. Our instructor, Colleen Anderson, was tops in sharing and guiding with us to write compassionate, humorous, and genuine stories about ourselves.

Wow, I was surprised to learn how writing prompts bring out excellent writing rather than contrived stories. There is just so much about our lives we have not thought about in a long time. For me, the class forced me to move away from the morose topics to forgotten ones filled with great memories. The class was a blast, full of work, but just the right amount.

This writing program is both a joyous and emotional experience. Learning about your classmates through the stories they create brings a new understanding of life in America. It may possible to have this much fun elsewhere, but I doubt it.

I got a good start on writing my memoir . . . with helpful advice for going forward. Ripley, WV offered a pleasant environment for many creative efforts and an atmosphere for making good friends! After our wrap up evening visiting all of the craft areas, I'm thinking of trying more of their offerings next year!
