An hour or so of creative writing could be a short story on its own. Residents from all walks of life, most over the age of eighty gathered as a group and shared together and built short stories or poems, or even an exercise in a quick collection of thoughts. Their experiences, environments, cultures, traditions, and upbringing within their backstories brought flavors that when combined and stirred together produced the most delicious results. It might have taken several meetings to months of sharing thoughts and pitching ideas back and forth before final sentences joined to form their stories and more.
"Elderberry Pie Homemade Stories" took more than two years of creativity to complete.
Kate Taylor and Jeff Underwood, partners and collaborative authors brought the book to life. Kate connected the members' words. Jeff edited their completed works. And that is how a group of the members of the Imaginative Elders Writing Club became writers, became authors.
Now, peek inside and then settle back to read their stories, poems and all the rest. Picture those elders sitting 'round the table enjoying ginger ale, coffee and cookies as they called out their ideas. Picture the camaraderie as they looked forward to being together to laugh, sort out thoughts, and have a good time doing it all. And feel their pride when they knew that "Elderberry Pie Homemade Stories" was really and truly a book, a book written by them. Likewise, you will sense their joy.
