Wednesday Night Critique

Since we have built such a great and vibrant group , I'd like to do something a little different this week. We talk a lot about structure, and voice and sense of place. What I would really like to devote some time to this week is a discussion around writing process. What works for you, what tools you use, how you edit.

 

We have a new place to meet! The E-mat has Stumptown coffee, treats and it's attached to a laundromat, so  bring your unmentionables (and your mentionables)

    I'm sorry but I couldn't find the place. I spent an hour driving around Portland looking for 2808 NE Martin Luther King Junior Blvd., but I probably didn't drive far enough north.

      It is about a block north of the Nike Factory Store. Hope to see you next time, David.

    Didn't get much quiet/alone time as planned today so I am going to do that. Hopefully see you all soon.

    I spent two years on a project that failed for structural reasons. Had I been pointed in the right direction at the get-go, I might have succeeded. At this point in my life, structure is primary: which way to roll the snowball down the hill?

    Process sounds good. I'd like to sometime get to story.

    I LIKE this, thank you Risa. I may need to cut out early to help out my friends trivia team. A geek's work is never done!

  • Thuri C.

    That's a great idea! I will be there (5-10 minutes late as usual)!

    I visualize one hour for the form discussion and one hour of our normal program of critique.

    Look forward to learning about other writers' processes.
