Writing and Reinvention

Hey Spunksters,

"The reinvention of daily life means marching off the edge of our maps."
-Bob Black

Well, everyone has had a little hiatus to work on their writing projects and now it is time to come together as a group and inspire one another again. Come join us at one of our favorite venues.  We will be writing so bring your laptops, notepads and pens or whatever you need to getting the ink juices flowing across the page

"I'm a geek who loves fashion. There's been a reinvention of the word geek. It means being passionate about anything that's under the radar or sort of frowned upon, like Comic-Con."
-Kristen Bell

4:00 - 4:30 Arrival and Discussion. What inspires you to reinvent your writing or life in general when things are getting stale?  I will bring some things I have found (quotes, artwork, inspiring new friends...) and members are welcome to do the same.

4:30 - 5:00 Writing Prompt(s)-I will publish these on the facebook site in a week or so in case you want to come more prepared.

5:00 - 5:45 Small Group Sessions-We will share excerpts from the prompts or an excerpt of 1500 words or less in a workshop format.

5:45 - 6:00 Open Discussion and Ideas for Next Time

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have.

    Alternate Prompt

    Character Prompt

    Believable, fully developed characters serve to engage readers and strengthen your stories. Choose a character from one of your stories-in-progress or imagine a character about whom you’d like to write. Compose a character sketch based on a day in the life of this character. Explore every detail of what this person does and why throughout one day. How does he or she walk and what does it say about this person? Where does he or she go and why? Use this sketch to inform the revision or writing of a story.

    Prompts for WRITING AND REINVENTION...

    THINGS WE CARRY

    Make a list of the physical objects you carry with you: a wallet and phone, a journal and pen, medications and mementos. Then make a list of the non-objects you carry: memories, ideas, dreams, scars (literal or figurative), the people or places of your past. Once you've created both lists, write an essay that incorporates and investigates the items on each. Why do you carry these things? What do they mean to you? Use "These are the things I carry" as your opening line.
