North Charleston Wordcrafting

Tentative agenda:

1. Introductions as necessary, to include:
A. Background.
B. Writing aspirations.
C. What you would like to get from these meetings.

2. Optional assignment for those who need a nudge:

Write a story, essay or poem using the word “rock.”

  3. Share work for feedback. Please don’t let a lack of work keep you from attending. It is our mission to help you light that spark. If you post work ahead of time in The Reviewing Arena on the Message Board under the “Discussions” link at the top of your screen, we’ll be able to provide more constructive reviews based on detailed analysis.

4. A little spontaneous conjuring to release any excess creative energy that may be bubbling around in the room.

5. Open forum. Topics could include, but are not limited to:

A. Learning to see again.

B. Harnessing your muse.

C. Cultivating discipline.

Let the creativity flow from your soul!

    Great group. Good hearing from all the genres. Loved the participation. Wonder if the folks at B&N/Starbucks will let us unplug the refrigerator next time?

    Dave - Think of a snapshot of what you want the audience to see & be lured in by! Show don't tell! You could describe a situation going on before you - or a conversation - or an argument! I find when the audience is propelled into character's conversation it creates suspense right off the bat! Just some suggestions! Good luck!

    Hey, I'm new to doing meetups, so I have no Idea what to expect. I'm trying to write a novel but I'm stuck on how I should start it. I really hope that someone will be able to help?

      Don’t worry. We don’t bite, and we’ll do everything we can to light a spark under your muse.
