Warming Up For A Summer Of Action

I am participating in a writing workshop on Thursday nights at Newtown’s public library.  The instructor, Aimee Pokwatka, has guided others in the pursuit of various types of writing.  I am hoping by taking this workshop that I will give myself a sufficient knock in the noggin to do more with words.  No more excuses!  I have met the enemy and the enemy is me.

Here is an example of one simple exercise she gave us to think about plot and the flow of a story.

Fill in the blanks:

Once upon a time there was [blank].

Every day, [blank].

Because of that, [blank].

Because of that, [blank].

Until finally [blank].

Now would be a great time to do this as we did during our session.  However, instead, I will settle on the couch, a cup of tea in hand, and continue reading A Writer’s Guide to Persistence.
