 Inspired by this image, write for ten minutes (or more).

Class, take this period to work on whatever interests you, whether it be a screenplay, poetry, or an idea for a short story.  Remember we’ll be in the lab Friday so you can post something on your blog and read your peers’ work.

Tomorrow, we’ll be looking at play scripts and comparing them to screenplays.

As always, happy writing
