-If you want to know your last essay grade, let me know. But, honestly, we’re starting this whole thing over. Starting NOW.
-First off, how is everyone doing? What are you writing, how are you dealing with all this? What’s on your mind?
-Let’s PRODUCE. Story, thought, let’s just MOVE…
-Let’s just move forward…. But first, thoughts on Sedaris. What you learned, what you saw, how he connected with you and what his intentions were through his PRODUCTION.
-What about his writing do you want to incorporate into yours. Or, what about Sedaris influences your outlook on the world and by extension your writing?
-Jenny Lawson…. All I have to say is, well, WOW. Why would I say that? Why would any reader say that? What notes have you taken?
-What are some characteristics, or qualities of her writing? How would you describe her humor?
-Any passages you want to share, that stood out to you for a particular reason?
-Her and Sedaris… different, similar, what?
-Jenny Lawson’s book connects would be great for someone who……………?
*Needs to laugh.
*Is looking for new perspective.
Your journal… what are you writing for you?
Thinking about your story and where you are in it, aside from everything that’s going on… What makes you want to tell a story?
*How are you using a journal? That is, when do you connect with it and what makes you connect with it?
Homework due before next online meeting: 3-page typed reaction email to me, on your reaction to Lawson’s writing and how she writes… NO SUMMARY, just a reader’s reaction.
Also…. Email me pictures of your journal’s pages, whichever pages you wish!
Lastly….. write more in your journal, about what’s happening with quarantine and all the covid effects, but more importantly you and how you are maintaining character composition during all this….. USE. YOUR. JOURNAL.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
