I have been in England since Wednesday, helping to set up for and now run an "Effective Communication Workshop" here at the YWAM Harpenden base just north of London. This a EuroCom workshop focusing on making people in YWAM more effective in their communication in all areas: design, web, writing, photography, etc. It covers a lot of everything over three/four days and then we break into smaller groups to cover some topics in more depth. The group is made of 14 people from all over (12 different nationalities represented!!) and they are a LOT of fun.
Besides handling logistics and other stuff, I also taught on "writing" today, and had a great time. even though I am not an expert by any means, I feel like I can share some of the tidbits I have picked up about writing over the years... After teaching some basic principles, I gave them a writing assignment. They had to write for 10 minutes on the topic of "the first time..."
Here they are getting down to it:
