Cold Fingers? Facing The "Blank Page Of Death"

4-4:30 arrival and discussion...facing our fears and overcoming writer's block.

4:30-5:00 short writing prompt and sharing. No one will be put on the spot.

5:00-5:45 small group critiques.
5:45-6:00 re-convene in one group. Feedback on sessions.

Bring a short excerpt of 2 to 4 pages to share with the group. Please bring 4 or 5 copies. All genres are welcome.

Every writer has sat down at a blank page or screen and been terrified.

“Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?”
― Kurt Vonnegut

Personally, I like a fearless and direct approach...

Lili St. Crow
“Discipline allows magic. To be a writer is to be the very best of assassins. You do not sit down and write every day to force the Muse to show up. You get into the habit of writing every day so that when she shows up, you have the maximum chance of catching her, bashing her on the head, and squeezing every last drop out of that bitch.”
― Lili St. Crow

    Why do you organize something, and then not show up for it? Is it just my imagination that people are getting weirder as the world gets warmer? Of course, it was full moon, and that may be an explanation.

      I guess it says at the top that this meetup group no longer has an organizer. That sucks.
