Writers write, right? When they’re not writing, they’re thinking about writing. Sometimes it isn’t easy getting started. It’s time to let go of your worries and get ready. How do you ready yourself to write? What helps you prepare to get the words on paper? This workshop will provide 10 steps to ready yourself to write the story you want to write. This session will be interactive, with a talk from Gail, a writing exercise for participants and a question and answer portion open to all and any questions about writing. Gail will also provide a direct response to participants’ original fiction writing submissions in a round-table setting.
