Make Writing a Habit

write a story

Make writing a daily habit. Check out our second the last week of our graduating capstone. This week: Add character, setting, and conflicts and watch Mike magically weave a story. It will be a-MAZE-ing!(Plus it’ll be fun to see how Mike handles those unexpected curve balls. I love him!). Go MIKE!

The Window or The Mirror: Part II

When artists choose to write or create what’s urgent or passionate for themselves while holding up the window for others to peer into their very inner core and layering a mirror behind their art, then people might be moved by that art and see a part of themselves in it. That’s my definition of truly powerful art.

An example? To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee jumps immediately to mind.
