When I heard about the creative writing camp, I was extremely excited. I love thinking creatively, and telling great stories. However, I don’t have the discipline to do these things regularly or finish what I start, for that matter.
The first writing exercise was mind stretching as if was the first day of a fitness work-out. Much like anyone else being pounded into shape, I wanted to push back. My first thoughts were, “I can’t think of anything to write…” or “A purple what?”, were my first reactions. But soon, I began to open my mind.
By the end of the week, there was a noticeable difference in my ability to present as well as my capacity to think creatively. I even felt confident speaking in front of the group, and we all know how daunting speaking in front of our peers can be. I thought I might be a developing writer.
Thank you for such a thought stretching workshop. It was awesome! -Kristy
