Meetup Description: I'm pleased to announce our next meet-up!
Come one, come all! Join us for an evening of reading, sharing, collaborating, and chit-chattering (well, not really that much chit-chattery, but I admit, a little will take place, no matter how strict we try to be).
Yesterday we discussed posing small writing assignments to one another to work on over the month... just little exercises that we can do and share to see how each of us approaches the writing process.
1) Look around for great lines and quotes. You'll be amazed at how just the briefest snippet of literature can spark a whole new idea (or even a whole new novel). Try to bring at least one good snippet to next meeting.
2) Create five characters using only one sentence of each. Keep them super short, and super simple, and try to push the boundaries of what might be your normal character. Bring these to share: you or someone else may become inspired by your creation!
EX. A young boy whose father is in jail.
EX. A waitress who enjoys creating rhyming menus.
EX. A policeman who owns ten cats.
Please feel free to upload your work to the Files section (it helps to have a solid week to read stuff that's been uploaded, so try to upload before Oct. 28th). Otherwise, feel free to just bring your piece along, or bring no piece at all, if you don't have anything you're ready to share.
Please note that there is a $3 rental fee so that we can use the space. I know that a fee isn't exactly grand news, but if I (a 25yo who has been unemployed for two months until just yesterday) can shell out $40 a month for the group's costs, I know y'all can find $3 laying around... and yes, that is what we call 'good, olde fashioned Catholic guilt'. ;)
If you have questions or comments, drop me a line or just post to the group. Talk to you all soon!
Keep on Writing!!!
