Storybird Scribes: The New Kid Roundup

For this month’s challenge, we asked you to take that famous writing advice, “Write what you know,” and put it to work. Think back to a time when you tried something new for the first time. How did it make you feel? Use your experience, and your memories of those emotions, to help you create your fictional characters and tell your story.

This was an exercise to build your writing skills, and we want to congratulate EVERYONE who entered. You all did a great job of looking inside to find emotions that fueled your stories. We’ve featured a few examples below that exemplify the spirit of this challenge.
