Writing is a lonely profession.
As a result of this, we tend to believe we have to do every writing-related thing – coming up with ideas, devising characters, rescuing ourselves from plot-holes – by ourselves.
(A plot-hole, not unlike a similar-sounding pothole, is an obstruction along the course of a story that writers sometimes mistakenly drive down into, which, depending upon its size, can cause major damage to the story's functioning that requires expensive (time, progress, sanity) repairs.)
But we novel-writers might do well to follow the example of our peers in film and TV, where they often workshop their ideas and story problems.
The purpose of this meetup is for us to do just that, harnessing the collective knowledge and inspiration of a whole group of creative people to troubleshoot what’s gone awry in our works-in-progress.
The discussion kick-starter question for this meetup is thus as follows:
"What plot-holes or problems are you experiencing in your work-in-progress or story idea you plan to write?"
We’re ready to serve as your writing team and help tow you out of the rut!
Other topics will also be discussed as they arise, in a relaxed, friendly manner.
New members welcome! Look for the "Vancouver Writers' Social Group" sign on the table.
The venue is located at Burrard and Helmcken and is part of the Burrard Hotel.
NOTE: If you end up on the waitlist, please don't just show up unless you are notified via the Meetup site of an opening and are added to the guest list.
