15-Minute Monday

I’m teaching at LDS Storymakers. This Friday. I can’t remember the time.


I’m kind of excited. And scared. They’re going to be a lot of crazy-good people at this conference.


In celebration for what will be happening this week, I’ll give you three writing exercises.



Today in your writing, introduce a character who’s completely unreliable.



Today in your writing, step out of your comfort zone. Maybe this means that you will write poetry, one word per page, or a violent scene. Whatever. Just do it.



Look carefully through your work and see if every page has two or three bits of sense of place. Remember that place grounds the reader.


There you go.

Maybe I will see you on Friday
