How can we focus our minds creatively in our current, distraction-rich world? Easily. In fact, meandering and digression are secret ingredients to great writing. You find an entry point and let the story unspool, creating its own patterns and shapes. You let the characters take charge of their own actions and soon, you have no idea how you got there. Then you take a step back and organize the pile of words, revising it until you find meaning that hits on what you thought you were doing at the start.
Bring a project you’ve been working on, or start from scratch. We will spend much of our time together writing, responding to exercises and prompts, then reading and discussing. Reading is always an option, never a requirement. Some close readings of Elizabeth Strout, Toni Morrison, Nicholas Baker, and James Baldwin, among others, may be included. Halfway through the session, we will set goals for finishing, be it a short story, an essay, a few poems, or a chapter of a longer book.
