Building Great Stories
This class is divided into two parts. Part one consists of three sessions devoted to Plot. In sessions one through three students will discuss the plot elements that make up Acts I, II, & III: scenes, themes, the hook, introduction of protagonist, antagonist, and other characters, the protagonist’s goal, problem, story question, and the first act turning point or climax. In session two, students will discuss escalation of emotion, tension, and conflict, obstacles and complications confronting the hero. Action and suspense bring our story to its midpoint where the protagonist learns of a surprise or twist in the story. We’ll also see our hero to his or her lowest point, and ends with the second climax or turning point. In session three, students discuss raising escalation and stakes for the hero, a second twist or revelation, leading to the final climax between hero and villain, denouement, and resolution. Part two of the course consists of three sessions devoted to a study of characters through three acts. In session four students will discuss how to create characters: their traits, flaws, and psychological trauma. Session five will focus on character webs, character arcs (change) through three acts for the protagonist, antagonist, and any romantic interest. In session six students will discuss building character sympathy, creating characters your readers have to root for. The instructor invites you to begin the journey. The students should bring writing utensils and a notebook to class.

Full Body Workout with Stability/Fitness Ball and Stretch Bands
When you combine the stability fitness ball with resistance bands for exercising, you will target major muscle groups for effective toning, strengthening, and flexibility. At the same time, you’ll be improving your posture, balance and coordination, all the while zeroing in on your core, the power center of the body where all movement originates. Working out on the ball also helps you to strengthen those small, intricate muscles in the lower abdomen and pelvic girdle, important for flattening and firming your tummy. Exclusive to this program, easy to follow review exercise print-outs are available at each class session. With additional mini home workouts on the ball, you’ll be amazed how your energy heightens, and overall fitness and well being tops the scale. Students should bring their own stability ball (see size chart below), and a full-body floor mat. A yoga style mat is fine.
Norma King will be the instructor. The class will begin on Saturday, March 28th and will run for 6 weeks from 9:00 - 10:00 am. The class will be held at the New Suncook School. The fee is $39.00.

It is best that the ball inflation be so that you can sit on the ball with your feet on the floor and knees bent at 90 degrees. It is also best to wear light weight secure sneakers with non slip soles while exercising on the ball.
Forgiveness, what is it? If I forgive someone does that mean I condone what they’ve done? Do forgiveness and forgetting always go together? What is forgiveness anyway? These may be some of the questions that you find yourself asking. We will spend our time together seeking the answers to these questions and more while also learning about the true capacity for forgiveness and the benefits associated with it. Please bring a journal/notebook and something to write with.
