Austin Speed-Writing Challenge Group Message Board › Advice from Anne Lamott
I thought this was an interesting bit of advice for those of us attempting to write fiction...
"You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. Just change their height and hair color. No one ever once has recognized him or herself in my fiction. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should've behaved better."
BTW, we've shifted our meetup location; we're now going to be meeting at Cafe Express. And we should be able to stick to 1st and 3rd Wednesdays.
