Largo Story Circle

Notes from October 2 session

Great stories were written and read by Heidi Jurka, Ruth Solo and Nobuk Plantamu (Kathy) on our topic from last month “Life is Hard.”

Our lesson was cliches. What are they and how to avoid them for better writing. How to use them sparingly and to your advantage. Handout: http://writing2.richmond.edu/writing/wweb/clicheprint.html

We also spend a lot of time discussing first drafts vs revision. Revise, revise, revise.

Our assignment for our next Largo meeting, December 3rd: Write 600 words or less about “Tables”. Any tables, anything that took or takes place at a table – a dinner at Grandmas, an elegant dinner date, a meeting at a conference table, a child’s tea party, or just propping your feet up on the coffee table.
