Writing 101: Assignment #20: Final: The Wrap-Up


Primarily, I want to thank all of the bloggers who have been supportive of this blog throughout the duration of this course. Those who are regular PBS supporters and all of the wonderful new blogging buddies I have made. I do not have much for you this morning. Briefly, the prompts exposed me to some very creative ways to develop content. The method I enjoyed most was the story in a single picture exercise. I’m a visual learner, meaning I need to see it to understand it. That said my “Aha” moment if you will was discovering that I can develop a story just by looking at a single photo. This is definitely something I will be incorporating more into this blog and into my writing in general. Overall, the best thing about this course was the social interaction. I have gotten to know so many bloggers and have discovered so many blogs! In these four weeks I have followed quite a lot of you and I look forward to being enlightened by what you have to offer.

Below is a list of this week’s assignments. Usually I do this on Sunday but since today is the final wrap-up I will list them here. Also note that I have also created a page for my Writing 101 Assignments so that you can always go back and review them and so that new visitors can find them.

Assignment #16: Mine Your Own Material
Assignment #17: To Map a Purpose

The Last Post

I have not given up on you yet, but this is my last general post. For the week. Not my usual last post, but the last one until next week sometime. There won’t be a Recipe Sunday coming up and you will not get your stream of inspirational quotes, poetry, and whatever else I feel like talking about. I will be taking a mini vacation away from this blog to handle some much needed business. I thought about whether or not to just disappear into thin air. If I should leave you pondering the misty like dust lingering around my dashboard; if I should cloak myself with invisibility and then suddenly re-appear, but I don’t think that would be much fun. In the meantime, I would like to give an open invitation to both new and old followers to help yourself to the house. Scroll through as many old posts as you wish, help yourself to the tabs, whatever pleases your fancy, comment, or join this blog for the first time. I will still be interactive while I’m gone. I just won’t be in the position to publish any posts but I do have eyes in the back of my head just so you know. And while you can make yourself at home I’m not sure if there’s anything in the fridge so if you plan to stick around just like, bring a snack or something.

Ok well that’s it. I better get on outta here; I have a plane to catch. The post after this one will be my final quote of the week. So yea, stepping away now. Don’t everyone cry at the same time.
