One way to become a better writer is to read good writing. In this online book club you will read stories by authors that were inspired by real events in their lives.
This week read "The Battle of the Axe" and "The Visitors" by Claire Legrand in Been There, Done That: Writing Stories from Real Life.
The writing project for this month is to write a short story.
