We can always improve on something we love.
The second workshop started well, again an early start and into Wellington too soon.
We examined introductions, that is like a speech begin well or your reader is gone.
We practised writing; write like a rock star, quickly let-it-all-hang-out. Time for editing later.
Then we practised editing. I’m old enough that I must print out my writing and edit on paper, millennials din’t need to do this. Growl.
We did not discuss process, I think we should. Post at least each week, write every day. Any progress, even tiny is a step forward. Writing 700 words is a stretch for me but that is a standard minimum for the news.
We did not discuss endings; summary; call to arms; entertainment, or really story telling. But get the words down. Silence is invisible.
As I began this blog: We can always improve on something we love.
Kia Toa, Kia Ngakauni
Have courage, desire greatly.
