Today, Saturday, my dear friend and fellow writer, Estelle Rice, taught a class at Writers Circle, my studio in Hayesville, NC. All the students participated and seemed to enjoy each exercise Estelle gave them. It was obvious that she was well prepared for today.
Estelle has written some delightful short stories such as Antiques which appeared in Lights in the Mountains and her story, Chicken and Dumplings in Echoes Across the Blue Ridge.
A few years ago, she published a poetry chapbook, Quiet Times, filled with spiritual poems.
Like our other guest writers this summer, Estelle was inspired by the students. Some of them are experienced writers and some are beginners.
I am sure they all left today with new ideas that will end any writer's block or hesitation to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard.
I can't wait to further explore the notes I scribbled on my legal pad.
