What the Wind Picked Up: Proof That a Single Idea Can Launch a Thousand Stories by Chi Libris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a collection of short stories. Robert Whitlow by favorite author has one story in the collection. The book was written according to the back cover, "To show new writers that they can relax about their ideas - and simply celebrate the diversity of their storytelling gifts - the members of ChiLibris undertook this book. Each writer made something different from the same basic ideas. Each of the 21 short stories in this book uses the same five elements:
THE FIRST LINE: THE WIND WAS PICKING UP.
PURSUIT AT A NOTED LANDMARK
UNUSUAL FORM OF TRANSPORTATION
THE LAST LINE: SO THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SHE DID
My favorite two of the short stories were: Reinventing Love by Stephen Bly and Priorities by Yvonne Lehman.
