This is another assignment from first course at the Writer’s Studio. Our task was quite specific. We had to draw the reader outside after an initial description inside, and the story was to end with a coughing fit.
A short piece I wrote during a course with the Writer’s Studio. We had a strict word count and prompts to follow. I remember with this one, we had to use a song in it. Saying goodbye to a child at the airport is not easy.
