I just finished a ten-day virtual residency at Hamline University, where our craft focus was on all aspects of plot. It’s always an exhausting but rewarding time to do deep dives with faculty and aspiring writers. My notebook is now littered with sentences and fragments of wisdom that I’ll add to my toolbox going forward.
Which brings me to telling you about an experiment I’m trying on Instagram starting this week.
It’s a mini-video series on IGTV called Meg’s One-Minute Writing Tips. No, it’s not an MFA, but this might be just what you need when you’re in a pinch. I’ll unpack different aspects of craft and/or writing practice in sixty-seconds – short and sweet. I hope you’ll find the nuggets useful for your own writing or for sharing with students when school starts in a few weeks. I’ll try to post one up there every couple of weeks.
Let me know what you think! And if you have burning topics you’d like me to cover in one minute or less, send those suggestions, too.
See you on Insta!
Odds and Ends
