The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 7 – Establish Your Story World’s Normal

January 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6:00 – 7:30:  The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 7 – Establish Your Story World’s Normal

Bring a cup of joe, sit back, and relax. Catch up with old friends. Make some new ones.  Then…

Tonight, we’ll be learning how to create the initial background for your story.

Homework:  None!

Side Trails:  We may also be reading short excerpts from two others books, but there’s no need for you to purchase them, as we’re only covering about 2% of either of them each week.  However, in case you’re wondering, they are:

The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists:  Insider Secrets from Top Writers by Andrew McAleer

Writing Down the Bones:  Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg

7:30 – 9:00:  Tre Critique

Tre Critique is  three-member team approach to more dynamic and informative critiques of our work.  By both giving and receiving two critiques each week, the quality of your writing will improve at a rapid pace and reach high quality in the shortest possible time.  Variations resulting from uneven groups include two and four members in a critique group.

Please review this link for details.

Please refrain from discussions during reading and critique periods.  If you’re not participating in the critique, feel free to hang out and write, but keep things “library” quiet until after all critiques are complete.  Thank you.  🙂

See you there!
