Write about yourself in third person.
Well that is what Jane's prompt said, so she is. You see, Jane is taking four classes at once online, and never stopped to think that, or care that, she would not be able to do all with the same fever at the same time. One of the classes includes 180 prompts to pick from in no particular order, and Jane chose the one to do this blog entry that reads something like this: Write about yourself in third person.
Previously, Jane had read the prompts, saw some videos, printed out some things, and called it a day with that class until yesterday. Jane is on Spring Break now and finally had some extra time on her hands. Jane took the class so she could experiment with a form of art journaling she usually doesn't do, but yesterday, and today, it all came together in a two page spread. That's what you're looking at up there. It may have something to do with Jane and her two brain cells that work together for computer stuff finally realizing there was a section of the online class that had gone untouched, based on an assumption of what that part was but never checking it to see. What was Jane thinking? Aren't all parts of a class important enough to check into, at least? Well, not when you're Jane and you make stupid assumptions.
Maybe next time Jane will follow a collage prompt and a writing prompt at the same time. More likely not. Jane doesn't usually follow all the directions on this sort of thing. Luckily, Kelly, the teacher is used to this and always asks the students to think, "What if?" and Jane takes full liberties with that. If you want to know more about this class, A Life Made by Hand, Kelly's blog has a much better explanation.
