Write a story or poem based on the title When I let Go
When I Let Go
When I let go I will be free!
Free of anger, hurt, and shame.
Free from the guilty because once I wasn’t strong enough.
When I let go I won’t feel anger at myself for not standing up.
When I let to the hurt will vanish and be replaced by forgiveness.
Forgiving myself for the shame I feel for not standing up for myself.
Now I can be free because I know that the weakness I felt was strength.
Strength that not only helped me endure the pain but helped me fight and become free.

The Insane World of Jordan Williams.
It was my last few days in LA and I went around town taking pictures. I wanted to remember the place that was my home for 11 years. As I took the pictures I realized how beautiful the city was. It was like seeing it for the first time. Find place where you live and take a picture. Look at the picture and ask it to tell you a story then write that story town.
Write a story based on this picture. What if your character was locked inside so long that when she finally went outside and the snow melted she or he discovered that the world changed. How does it change? Is it really snow? Maybe the world she/he know isn’t like how it’s suppose to be?
