6:00 – 7:30: The Craft: Swain’s Creating Characters – Ch 17: The Search for Zest
How do you maintain your cutting edge as a writer? You draw on the stimulus of people.
People-watching was a favorite pastime of mine back in my high school days when I was shy. I learned a lot about people, enough to begin pulling their inner feelings into my stories by college. Since then, I’ve grown more into engaging others than merely watching them. Continuing my development as a writer, however, requires me to rekindle my powers of observation, viewing others through new eyes, the eyes of experiences I have now, but not when I was back in college.
Join us as we learn Swain’s tips for maintaining our enthusiasm, our zest for work!
Homework: Read Chapter 17 before arriving.
