where creative minds can interact

Last night I went to my first creative writing class. In our first exercise everyone came up with a word they liked or didn't like. Then we had to create a story with them. It was a lot of fun, and a great way to jump start creative juices.
For homework we had to tell our life story using short 1-3 word phrases, separating each thought or event with a comma.
The idea so intrigued me that I came home and did the exercise. I thought I would share it here so the members can know a lot about me. Also, it was a fun exercise. I might revise, but here it is in 'raw" form.
