SPRING WORKSHOP MAY 15th
Our spotlight this month is dedicated to LAURA!!!!
Laura Bastian is now twice as old (or older) than the characters she’s
trying to write about. But she loves reading books for Young Adults
and is now attempting to write some of those books. Fantasy and
are her favorites, but she also loves all kinds of
books. Reading has been a favorite pastime all her life. Even at the
breakfast table ( if a book isn’t close by, she’ll read the cereal
boxes top to bottom, front to back.) Her husband has even been amazed
that she will read a book while watching a movie. (Hey, when the
movie gets boring, she can dive into a book and be swept away).
She is a mother to 4 and wife to 1. She is a homebody, preferring to
travel to distant places in the comfort of her own home with the magic
of a good book.
She has always loved reading, but only recently decided that she loves
to write. An elementary teacher by profession, she let her license
expire to focus on raising her young family. In an attempt to earn
credits to renew her license, she enrolled in a writing class. The
first assignment involved looking at a picture and writing a 1000 word
story from it. That story just begged to be extended and an 81,000
word Science Fiction YA story emerged.
There are many steps ahead in this journey, but Laura is so excited to
be on it. It isn’t as easy as she once daydreamed it was, but
someday, with lots of hard work and the help of some great support,
she’ll finish this journey.
We’ll see you all at our next meeting!
