7-7:10pm: Introductions, current work and ideas…
7:10-7:35pm: Irby…. What’s your direction? What outside source did you find? Anybody go on YouTube and see one of her interviews?
7:35-7:50: Your writings about YOU… your stories. They are yours, and you should look further into them, for a number of reasons. When someone asks for a story from your life, where’s the first place you go? What’s the first moment you think of?
7:50-8pm: Close…. What’s on your page for the night?
For me: KEEP THE WRITING PERSONAL. STOP THINKING SO MUCH.
ASSIGNMENT: Irby essay.
That’s it. I want all your focus to be on this paper. My hope is that you will make it yours. While still keeping it professional, you will ensure it’s personal and that you own your writing and the ideas you convey. The more you focus on structure and that it’s an assignment, the more harm you’re doing to your paragraphs. Write from your ides, your opinion… the support you provide is in the strength of your written voice, demonstrating that not only you read her work, but have a formed and framed position on it.
ENJOY YOUR WRITING.
