BRING YOUR CHARACTERS TO LIFE
Jackie gives great advice about characterization. I have saved this to refer to when I attempt my next piece of fiction. I enjoy taking a prompt like the ones I receive in my Inbox almost every day from Peggy Millan.
When I don't have time to work on that prompt that day, I save it in an e-mail folder so I can always find something handy to prick my sensitivities and provoke me to write. Whether I write fiction or non-fiction or poetry, the prompts in my arsenal help me overcome my writer's block.
Our classes at my studio in Hayesville, NC - Writers' Circle - is prompting writers and those who want to be writers to get out their pens and keyboards.
Mary Michelle Keller's class at Writers' Circle beginning Wednesday, May 19 and continuing for the next two weeks, involves a bit of genealogy and a bit of writing. The class is filling and space is limited. Anyone who plans to take the class needs to contact Mary Mike now to give her time to do the research needed before the day of class. email@example.com
Soon we will add Paul Donovan as one of our instructors. Look for more on his classes in July or August.
So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca
