Writers Workshop, assignment 1

I’m currently working on assignment two, but thought I’d post assignment one. When I figure out how to go back to the old assignments I’ll save the instructors comments for the re-write. Until then, this is what I submitted, unaltered, unedited, raw so to speak. 1. "ugly" image She’s got dirt in places no one wants dirt. From beneath the the second skin of grime shines bright eyes, one blue, one green. Alight with the glow that children have regardless of their position in society. Her proud strut from the Wal-Mart to the apartment complex that has been her home for the last two years, has the air of someone above it all.
