Feb 11th Meeting – Developing…

The February 11th meeting will take place in its new location, see the side column for the address.

This is Valentine’s Day month, so we will, of course, be celebrating with CHOCOLATE! As Louise already said, bring your favorite and bring some to share. Candy, cake, whatever works. Anything chocolate works for me.

Our craft focus this month will be on Developing: An Idea, Characters, and Settings. I have added the handouts to the Resources section. These are what I use in the two writing classes I teach. But I know there are so many more thoughts on the subjects. Please share yours with us. If you have information you want to share as handouts/printouts, 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.

Also, if you want to try a writing challenge, again, these are what I used in my February writing classes. 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: lightning – peach – surprised – pine tree – knee

PROMPT: Write about the first time you held someone’s hand.
