The bell has wrung, class is now in session. Quiet down, class. Our first assignment, chosen by Tara, came from Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. “It was only a duck pond, at the back of the farm” inspired you this week. The turnout was small but worthy, each piece different from the next., and we gained 2 new classmates this week!
Shannon’s amazing story of an adrenaline-fueled escape will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Troy’s woe-filled war story will make your heart sad and warm at the same time.
Wisper joined us for the first time with a beautifully woven tale of summer romance.
The professor thrilled with a tale of what happens when Only One Rule is broken.
Tara breathed life into a couple searching for the monster in the pond.

You have until Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 9:00 PM EST to submit your assignments. The link-up is now live.
