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...

“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
