Have you started a short story or novel you were once excited about, but you somehow ran out of steam or burned out along the way? Did you lose touch with your character, did your settings keep turning up dull and lackluster, or did your plot seem like it needed a jump-start, and you didn’t know what to do? Were you typing along quite happily for days, weeks, or even months, and then a problem or group of problems started to extinguish your desire to continue, leading you to believe the writing wasn’t good or to feel you didn’t know what the story was truly about? Sometimes we set aside manuscripts because the creative process becomes too intense and we face confusion and frustration we don’t know how to see our way through. But do not give in to the idea that the pages you created were a total lossbecause old manuscripts can be brought back to life, the flame rekindled to burn anew. When we get to the point of setting aside a story, the answer often lies in reaching out to our community, our writing tribe, to help us discover the flame of our story once again. In this workshop, we will march together back into the ashes of our works in progress. Through brainstorming sessions, Q&As with our drafts, discussion and reflection on the challenges in our personal creative processes, and effective doses of inspiration, we will discover how to find and fan the flame so the life of our stories can shine once again.
