How am I doing with the Creativity Workshop, you ask?
I have two stories-in-progress from the first section of the workshop. I posted snippets of the second story ideas in these Flash Fictions — here and here — and the blog comments (thanks, everyone!) reinforced my thinking that this story could move in some interesting directions if I followed it around for a while. It could even form the premise of this year’s National Novel Writing Month effort for me. Who knows? I’ll let you know in November.
Now I’ve moved certain parts of my brain to the next phase of the workshop — breaking the rules, breaking the law — and I am working on the first story. It’s fun to do a little diabolical thinking and we’ll see where that takes me.
