In my second year of attendance at my local creative writing evening class we all collaboratively produced a book of selected pieces of our course work. We produced over a hundred copies which was
successfully sold through local bookshops and of course family and friends.

One of the exercises in our Creative Writing class was to be given the first line of an already published story and for each of the class then to complete a their own short story using that first line.
On one occasion we were given the first line “Conradin was ten years old, and the doctor had pronounced his professional opinion that the boy would not live another five years.” from a short story "Sredni Vashtar" written by Saki (Hector Hugh Munro). See Wikipedia

I recently read the book “Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man and Life's Greatest Lesson” by Mitch Albom which inspired me to write "10 Things I Have Learnt".
