10:30 – 11:45 AM—Writer’s Craft Session
Michael Cunningham: WHERE DO STORIES COME FROM?
A question that arises frequently for writers: Where do you get your inspiration? Every writer will probably answer that question differently. For some, it is a fully planned story with beginning, middle, and end all spelled out in the writer’s mind (this is relatively rare). For others, it is wisps or fragments of a character the writer finds interesting, a particular scene, or an idea that wants fleshing out. There’s no right or wrong way; there’s only finding the way that works best for you. We’ll talk about the various ways a story arrives in the writer’s mind, and we’ll build a story together, starting from a single point and going on until some semblance of the entire story begins to present itself. It’s all about finding the aperture through which the writer can enter the story still to be fully written.
