My affiliation with Stanford University spans over 20 years. So, you can imagine my excitement when I received an email announcing an online writing program they offer and if I hurry I could register for the Winter semester. Naturally, I signed up and quickly got looped in to taking part in the first week of class.
I haven’t been to school for quite some time so getting back into the swing of things isn’t easy. Meaning to say, learning to read for a purpose and writing for a grade, and having to turn in homework ONLINE. The only thing I am not worried so much about is peer critiquing my work. I welcome it.
But the reason for this entry is to announce to all of you the list of reads our instructor has selected for the course. And the fact, that while I turn the pages of each book, what I am finding is that there is no right or wrong style of writing, as long as the story is told in a captivating manner:
The list of books:
- John Truby: The Anatomy of Story
- Lily King: Euphoria
- NoViolet bullawayo: We Need New Names
- M.L. Stedman: The Light Between Oceans
- Michael Chabon: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier &Clay
