What the Wind Picked Up: Proof That a Single Idea Can Launch a Thousand Stories


What the Wind Picked Up: Proof That a Single Idea Can Launch a Thousand StoriesWhat 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.

MISTAKEN IDENTITY

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.
