Get ideas you never knew you had! Give yourself permission to write and be creative!
You’ll walk away with your notebook of ideas for your next story, know how to use the research on creativity for your own writing schedule, knowledge of better writing practices, and an assignment for writing your next story to be entered in our short story contest.
Let's get the accountability and knowledge needed to write our next great story.
You will need to:
~Bring your writer’s Notebook!
~Be ready to be active – we’ll be walking around (FatPipeABQ, lunch, Epicenter, our mystery location, and then back to FatPipeABQ)
~Bring your favorite book (in print or online is fine!) – We’ll be talking about these books.
~Bring your walking shoes.
We’ll be doing some activities that spur creativity (as per a ton of research that’s really boring to read, but I won’t make you read that.)
More about Day 1:
~We'll start our journey at FatPipeABQ to talk about writing, what we want out of our writing. I’ll also talk about your writer’s notebook of ideas, some sections we’ll add to it, some ideas to jot down, etc.
~You’ll also get a shiny, magical Plot Duckies pen. Ok maybe not magical, but they're gorgeous!
~We’ll go off to our next destination with our creativity hacks in mind – the location is a secret. But we’ll go exploring and add creative ideas to our notebooks, even on the go because we’re all writers and it’s ok if we stop when we have brilliant ideas.
~The rest of our journey is in process! More coming soon.
Then we'll walk back to FatPipe ABQ to discuss your homework.
Homework: Create a flash fiction and submit it to Plot Duckies for a chance at winning $200, be published in the Plot Duckies Newsletter (Duckiemail).
