Use this space to post your "in-class" writing for Wedns.
Two things: first, because of our Snow Day and because I made our Wednesday asynchronous and online, I will collect Writer's Notebooks for this week (2 February 2022) and next week (7 February 2022) on Wednesday, 9 February 2022.
Second: Read this short excerpt, available by clicking on this link, from the flash non-fiction collection In-Short. This is the same collection that last week's in-class writing "Around the Corner" came from. I highly recommend it. Read the excerpt entitled "Falling Stars". You are welcome to read the other one "Three Yards" but my focus is on "Falling Stars". For today's in-class writing, part of your Writer's Notebook, write for about 7 minutes about a best friendship. You might write about it as a memoir. You might write about it as fictional. It all depends on where you think you are going with your writing in our class. Whichever you choose, consider how you will write it as Young Adult. Keep in mind the characteristics of the genre we talked about in last week's class to think about things like voice, tone, character, perspective, conflict, etc.
NOTE: As this is an asynchronous assignment, you need to have this and all of the other posts from this week completed by class time on Monday, 7 February 2022.
