2/5/22 WWG meeting recap, + info for March meeting!

Group Updates:

  • February was cold, but on Saturday the 5th our corner of Waconia Library was cozy and full of the delightful words we conjured from our inspiration:
    • Forgotten Spaces, Forgotten Things (aka, “write about something you found in your junk drawer/closet/forgotten space”).
  • We had some informative and productive discussions on a few related topics:
    • When writing about your own experience from the past, how to ensure your sense of time is clear for readers.
    • When revisiting an old piece to update the timeline (“moving” the present from then to now, which makes the original piece further in the past), how to find the balance between your voice now and the voice the piece was originally written in. Our voices change! The key is to be aware of that change when revising.
    • To the point above, we run the risk of going overboard with too many changes in an attempt to update the timeframes… be careful! This might result in you losing the tone of the piece.
