We had a discussion on the closing of CreateSpace and the transfer of paperback books from there to KDP Print. You can learn more about that from Diane’s blog post No One is Surprised: CreateSpace Closes and KDP Print Takes Over.
Members critiqued Donna’s submitted chapter.
Members read stories written by other members as homework.
New Format for Homework
We’ve decided to change things up a bit. Instead of a very short story being written for each meeting, we’re running a series of mini workshops on the basic construction of a story: Act I, Act II and Act III. One larger story will be written during this writing season.
Homework for October Meeting
Members must answer these two questions:
- What is it you want out of your writing?
- How do you define writing and publishing success?
Also, to start constructing their story, members must complete the character sheet for at least one of their main characters and introduce this character at the next meeting.
The next meeting takes place Tuesday October 16, 2018.
