Creative writing is fun! And those who are creative writers know it. But sometimes it can be hard, especially when you’re writing something long, something innovative or something super tricky. Creating, especially creating with words, takes serious thought energy, time and usually some amount of writerly skill. Oh yeah, and sometimes some solid writing prompts to get you started.
Where are you at 10:00am sharp on Saturday mornings? Sleeping in? Waking up? Waiting for brunch? I’m usually grabbing a seat at Mo Joe’s Cafe for a Shut Up & Write! marathon. To make it on time, I have to wake up before 8 in sleepy San Francisco to catch a just-shy-of-9 train that whisks me away to Berkeley and a spot at Mo Joe’s. Why do I bother? That first check-in.
