After yoga in the morning, Rita taught a class on Emotion and Suspense in Theatre and Fiction, which included several writing prompts and a lesson on how to build both tension and suspense, as well as including emotion without being too overt or cliché. After that, we had free writing. The weather was gorgeous, and many went outside to enjoy the views of the chateau and gardens. We discovered that some chicks had hatched in the chicken coop – they were extremely adorable. Yoga concluded the free writing period. After dinner we had a knitting circle – a great end to a beautiful day.
