The Bookstore Lady by Diane Bator, now available at BookLore in Orangeville.
As usual we started the meeting asking if anyone had anything to read. Caitlin explained that she has a short story to write for an anthology but is finding every excuse not to work on it. She feels the subject of erotica is holding her back. This started a discussion on how to motivate yourself to write. The following suggestions were made:
- Judy says when she is tired and starts writing it energizes her.
- Another suggestion was to dedicate an hour first thing in the morning to write. Get it done and then it's done.
- Have an email buddy to hold you accountable.
- Patricia said she needs someone standing over her with a whip. Clare volunteered. She declined.
Jayne was leading this week and she grabbed a bunch of books off the shelves in the church's library and placed them on the table. Everyone took a book and used either the title, cover picture, author's name or even a line from inside the book to use as their writing prompt.
I urge those in attendance to publish their results here. I will be doing so, in its rough form.
Our next meeting is Sunday, February 23rd. Judy will be leading.
