I liked how everyone shared their quotes in class… A piece of themselves. It was not only a good ice breaker, but it was good practice. In sharing these quotes we opened a new chapter to writing and creative process. We left ourselves vulnerable, open for scrutiny. As we do for the rest of our lives, in our application submissions for college and work, our ambitions, our failures, and our writing. We are open books, each person unique, but all with a story to tell.
