Anyway, thanks to all those who responded to the rush writing... I may do that again in the future, given the better response we had on this one.
Anyway, the assignment for this week is autobiographical in nature.
Take an event from your life that has a definitive beginning and end, and write about it. Feel free to fictionalize as much of it as you need to in order to make it a good story. Change details, change the endings, change the names to protect the innocent and the guilty alike. In fact, I ENCOURAGE you to fictionalize it, play a little bit of the "what if?" game, and make it into a good piece of work.
