The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 8b – Start the Inner Journey – Part II

January 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6:00 – 7:30:  The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 8b – Start the Inner Journey – Part II

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

Tonight we’ll continue learning why Gru is despicable, a villain who makes children cry!  We’ll see how something unexpected, possibly unimaginable, entered his life and sent him on a journey he never would have predicted.

We’ll learn how to launch our hero on their compelling inner journey. 

Homework:  Read Chapter 8 before arriving.

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!
