There has been a change to our planned August 19th meeting. Our guest speaker had to change her presentation to September 16th.
Writing prompts will be discussed. The following are some suggested ones to try out.
- Harry Potter comes to your house for dinner. Write this scene as if you were a teenager.
- Job Swap – Take a character from one of your stories and place them in your current job. How does the office respond?
- Hiring a New villain – Your old villain quit over creative differences, so put yourself in charge of hiring a new villain for your novel.
Critique of your work – In an envelope preferably, bring something you would like to have critiqued: a scene, a chapter, a poem, a memoir piece, or an article. We will explain the process at the meeting. The hope is that another member will take it home with them to critique. Put your contact information and the type of project on the outside of the envelope.
Dialogue – We will continue discussing dialogue. Bring questions you may have and something to read for feedback. Keep the piece you bring brief so that we have time for everyone.
