The last day of Writers Week was a good way to end the week. Kevin Prchal played really nice music and showed his emotions through it. He showed us that you don't have to be a writer to tell something, you can be a songwriter and do the same.
In third period, I saw three writers who had all taught at Fremd. One of their pieces, "Original Sin," was about the man trying to sell lost or abandoned golf balls so that he could raise money and play golf himself. The story was told in a very intriguing way, and I sat there wondering on the perfection of the title of the piece.
Having grown up with my father out of the household, I can certainly empathize with all the speakers that presented today during third period. I look forward to the pieces that they are looking to publish in the near future and am hoping to get a copy.
The Kickback delivered an entertaining finale which showcased the varieties of writing. Closing the week, I hope it was clear to the audience how wide-ranged writing spans.
I got the great opportunity to be able to see 6th period writers week! Once again, the students were amazing when they presented their pieces. I became so entranced by the songs from the three last performances, it was crazy to hear such great songs that aren't on the radio! I also loved Grace's piece with the video because it was so cool to see how happy that experience made her when she was in the play Aladdin. I'm very sad that Writers Week is now over but I can't wait until it's here again next year!
Sixth period had a lot of people who sang original songs while playing the violin/piano, and that was amazing? Those songs mostly focused on romantic love, which actually hasn't been too prominent a topic in Writer's Week, but I think it was well addressed in song form (the upbeat tunes and pretty melodies kept it from being cheesy). Also, the Kickback was a really cool way to end the week. While their music is not something I might personally listen to, the way they play was very inspiring. I liked the questions they answered and I love the aura that their music had.
