The Chicken Buzzer Meeting of Readings & Insights is our topic this month. Susan Marlene will direct this class by staggering 5 minutes of reading shares with 5 minute instruction on perfecting the craft by using brain science. We will keep this writer/teaching/writer pattern flowing during our teaching segment.
Pens Assignment: For Fiction and non-fiction writers wishing to participate in reading their work to the group: Pick up to five pages and edit them before Pens to reading at Pens. Write a scene or sample with purpose- who, what, where, when, why. If the action or dialogue or information doesn't move the story forward then cut that before the meeting. What does the antagonist want? What gets in the way? What is his/her reaction and feelings and thoughts about what happened? Or for non-fiction—What is your topic, who are you reaching and what is the message focus for tonight?
Susan will provide information from a popular how-to book on writing. Remember, leaving your reader inspired with excellent take-away is like an open invitation for your reader to return!

Words are not just words. They are thoughts and inspiration that have been behind every relationship and every deed--good or bad throughout time. If you have that burning desire to communicate and explore, come peruse my pages, teaching, and short stories. Allow inspiration to anchor your dreams on the written pages of memoirs, devotions, poems or stories, both short or long! Luxuriate in the creativity you were born to share!
