January 18th – Basics and Goals

A new year is upon us. Time to get moving forward on a project you’ve started and maybe got stalled on. Or time to move past the thought of “I’ll write a book (or whatever) someday” and get started.

Maybe you need a refresher on some of the basics, or need to learn them to begin with. Those will be the focus of the January meeting. There will be handouts on some of the basics discussed so you can refer back to them when needed in your personal writing life.

To Be Discussed:

  • Personal writing goals
  • Writing basics: formatting, word count, genres
  • Writing preparation: where, when, what
  • Project organization methods

As always, the most important thing is that ALL of us share in the discussions. Each writer has different experiences or helpful hints about how to do something. Share, share, share. Learn, learn, learn.
