AWG Meeting - Critique

  • Jul 30, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I thought the top floor of the Artisphere worked pretty well last week.  There are couches and small tables with chairs - we can't reserve the space, so folks just need to show up and stake a claim.

Note, I'm talking about the top floor. Take the circular staircase or elevator to the top where the video wall and the sound lab are. (We'll stay away from the sound lab, since it was loud in there.)

The parking garage ended up being free - I entered after 6pm on Kent Street and had the front desk validate my ticket.  Kent Street entrance ONLY.



1) "The Resurrectors" by Jim (this is a partial of a longer fantasy piece - questions for the reader have been included)

2) "Shadow of the Rock Star" Chapter 2 of a novel by Gary (a reworked chapter 1 is also available on the site for those interested. We'll just be discussing Chapter 2 tonight)

3) "Not Evil Enough" reworked chapter 1 from a middle grade novel by Jess

      My impaired speech is less of a problem in small groups

    Sorry to miss our visit to the Artisphere. This week I have many pending projects to resolve before my trip to NYC for the Writer's Conference. I am looking forward to being surrounded with lots of writers and learning a lot. I will share some details next week.

    Hello All,
    I haven't been writing much because my personal computer is down (more like bummed out). I'll be back with the group later this year.

    I would say that she is good overall, I would add a bit of rhythmic charge and grace to her words at the start of each response and when she responds to events, break up her words into multiple responses so that more emotion can come through and the reader can have a moment to breathe. Overall, I like the work, very promising. Look forward to the next meeting.

    I'm going to miss this meeting, but will send comments to all the authors. AND 300 Tricky Dick Fun Bucks to Jim.
