Thank you to everyone who took the first writing challenge! Your mini introductions were great. I hope that many of you will add introductions to your own "My Page".
Here is another writing activity we can do together. This is something I used to do with my writing students. They loved it! It's called "Chain Stories".
I'll write the first line. Whoever reads this blog first can write the second line in the comment section. The next person can write the third line...The story will continue in the comment section until I write THE END.
These stories are often filled with nonsense. That's okay. We just want to laugh and practise our writing skills. Please keep it clean
. If the story gets lost I may write a sentence to get it back on track.
Write only one sentence in your comment. You can come back later and write a second sentence. Contribute to the chain story as often as you want. To read the story as it develops you'll have to read the comments in reverse order.
