Where Do You Get Those Wonderful Ideas: Save The Date for 25 October

(Approximately a 1 min read.)

There was one really, really cool moment when I got my contributor’s copy of Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror.

I can sum it up pretty easily:

My essay and exercise starts off the entire book.

And today I’ve learned that the Dayton Metro Library is going to host the live version of the exercise on the 25th of October from 2-5pm.

Where Do You Get Those Wonderful Ideas?  We will spend approximately one
hour talking about ways to generate ideas and plot and character – and
how to strip them down to their most bare elements.  We will then spend a
portion of time writing a flash fiction
using these techniques and a prompt, and then comparing what we came up
with.

Bring whatever tools you need to write – laptop, tablet, pen, paper.  This is a participatory exercise, and should be a blast.
