Writing Prompt: Make a list of 3 memorable (or imagined) celebrity sightings that you’ve had.  Pick one and add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, sound, touch) and write for 10 minutes about it.  Then, post your writing in the comments of this blog for the chance to win a free writing class. A few weeks ago, I sat behind Jake Gyllenhaal on a plane back from San Francisco so I probably will write about that!
