We got so much done at our first session, we decided to do it again. Hope you’ll join us. Space is limited at the Lively Muse Studio so reserve your space early!
You have dozens of them. Maybe more. Story starts, character sketches, rough drafts of essays or poems, the bony beginnings of you-don’t-know-what but you kind of like it, scenes that could morph into stories if you’d only give them a chance. And if your a regular writing practitioner like I am, you’ve got notebooks full of them. Or you’ve got scores of files on your computer in folders called “to complete” or “first drafts” or “unfinished.” These are the pieces you started but never finished; the stories you half-way like or you’re curious about or that hold some kind of juicy promise. And if you’re like me, every once in awhile you’ll open to one of these unfinished pieces in your notebook or on your computer, reread it, and say to yourself, “I really do want to finish that sometime.”
That “sometime” is Saturday, March 16 at the Lively Muse Studio where writers of all stripes are invited to bring your unfinished, your half-done, your false starts, your messy drafts and spend the day writing toward finishing something. Or more than one thing. In a warm and friendly setting, you’ll have a chance to talk to other writers and get feedback on something you’re uncertain about.
We’ll provide the coffee and tea and some snacks to keep us going. You bring your notebooks or your laptops and a brown bag lunch and we’ll work alone/together to take those messy beginnings to the next stage, which might even be something that’s ready for submission.
