5-5:10pm: Hello!! Tell us about your journal and journal writing lately. Any stories? Anything you could turn into a longer work? Say 4-5 pages, ABOUT YOU?
5:10-5:40pm: Samantha Irby’s essay flavor….. tell us about it.
5:40-6pm: What writing does for a reader, for the one writing. But more than that… LIFE. What we want from it, how we get it and if we do then what. All these books we read and that I pick from semester to semester…. LIFE. It’s life we’re reading and exploring. Not a book, not just one person’s take on one day and another. What is the writing of one supposed to do? Can this be taught, or is it just an idea to excavate?
(NOTE: If you’re looking for answers, you’re in the wrong place.)
6-6:20pm: Self-talk… tell us about it. An essay to self, talking self out of and, or, through something. Where you find new thoughts, new assurances for and from SELF… new truth.
6:20-6:30pm…. Leave us with some ideas, thoughts, some encouragement for the night’s page. Think about what you post, it is directed directly at your colleagues. A note from you to them.
ASSIGNMENT: Enjoy the reading, and enjoy your life. Write about both. No page target or limit… just KEEP READING. And, again, I’ll keep saying this… ENJOY.
