Daily Log - Lowcountry Writing Project - Memoir Writing Course
Tuesday, June 16, 2009
Only one complaint about the course: Amy has set too high a standard with all the healthy food she brought on Monday.
We agreed that all the objects Lynda brought for prompts stimulated the creative writing process. We wanted to be able to choose more of them to write about. The end of the table was covered: tiny Japanese dolls, paper stars, antique eyeglasses, sacred Hawaiian beads, beads on a string, costume jewelry, a crystal ink well, and much more.
Amy gave a mini-lesson on the difference between character and characterization. The former is the description of a person; the latter is an an explanation of how the person changes over time and the techniques used to reveal the character, i.e., compare and contrast.
Next the blog lesson following the booklet that Amy authored. We wre too proud of ourselves! Some of us blogged for the first time.
Not much time left for working on Assignment I. That will keep until the afternoon or evening.
