How is it May already? Spring is zipping by as quickly as a Mazarati
This Thursday at Writing Pad, we’re very excited to offer another section of Victor Levin’s (“Mad About You,” “Win A Date With Tad Hamilton”) very popular Trouble and Rapture: Crafting The Studio Rom Com class. If you want to learn how to write realistic relationships and conflict, this is the class for you, even if you aren’t a screenwriter. Vic’s classes will blow your mind.
Also, next Sunday afternoon, you’ll have a chance to workshop a blog entry or concept and learn some innovative blog writing tricks in Getting to “Like”: Crafting A Compelling Blog with successful journalist Tim Grierson. In the evening, you can craft your plan for getting an agent and publishing deal in Get Your Book Published with 3 book deal Harper Collins author Derek Taylor Kent. One of the students who took Derek’s class got inquiries from 10 agents after he took the class!

Writing Prompt: Make a list of 3-5 items that you ate on a regular basis for lunch as a kid! Pick one or two and add a sensory detail to them (e.g. smell, taste, sound, touch). Now write a story, poem, or scene that includes that lunch item for 10 minutes and post the results in the blog. My childhood lunches typically consisted of peanut butter sandwiches (no Jelly), a Little Debbie Nutty Bar, and a Macintosh apple so that’s what I’ll write about.
