This fall I scaled back my freelance work to focus on a new client – a group of 18 homeschool kids in a homeschool co-op of which we are a part.
These 6th to 8th graders amazed me. The ones who could sit and write page after page after page. The ones who struggled with each sentence. I truly enjoyed watching them learn and grow over the eight weeks of our one-hour class (and I’m thankful for wonderful assistants who helped in the class!). And I hope they remember some of what they learned for future writing. 🙂
I’ve worked with a lot of different types of clients. While each one has left an impact on me, my latest client, in these kids, truly touched my heart in special ways. And I’m so thankful for that!
One of the projects these kids worked on was to pick a random photograph and create a story. A wonderful college friend of mine supplied me with just the right amount of photos for the class. Only she knows the true story behind each photo! Over the next few weeks, however, this blog will show the creativity of the writing class and what they thought happened in the photos (along with some creative pen names and bios).
I hope you enjoy their stories. Some will make you laugh. Some will make you shake your heads. Some will touch your hearts.
And for me. I know what went on behind-the-writing scenes to bring these stories from their imaginations to this website as their published piece of work for the class.
So for the next few weeks, I turn my blog over to these students…..
Enjoy and check back often for their stories (or watch my facebook or twitter feeds).
