March 11th Meeting – Digging Deeper

Our writing craft focus this month will be on Digging Deeper. We will discuss understanding goal, motivation, and conflict; using a GMC Template; how to use Point of View; when and why to use subplots; plotting basics; using a Novel Outline Template; using effective hooks; turning points; and understanding scenes and sequels.

If you have information you want to share as handouts/printouts on any of the above subjects, add them…or send them to me and I will add them for you.

Be sure to bring any issues you’re having on a current writing project. We are here to help each other.

if you want to try a writing challenge, again, these are the March items. You can use any/all of the words in a sentence, a scene, a short story. Or you can try your hand at the writing prompt.

WORDS: snow – sky blue – cautious – cactus – foot

PROMPT: Write from the viewpoint of a cactus – what’s it like to live in the dessert or have a “prickly personality.”
