This month’s topic: Saving Your Darlings

The old adage “kill your darlings” has been editing advice given to writers for decades.

This month we’re going to talk about getting to the heart of style

by looking at what we love about our own writing

and discussing saving, rather than deleting, what you love best about it.

Writers Roundtable

Join us for the next WSN Roundtable from 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, June 14, at The Coffee Press inside Henderson’s Paseo Verde Library.
This month’s topic is “Bringing Life (and Lives) to the Page: The Joy and Challenge of Creating Memorable Characters.”
WSN board member and UNLV writing instructor Greg Blake Miller (OlympianCreative.com) will host the discussion, focusing on the attention to detail, contextual understanding and empathy that go into bringing unforgettable characters to life in your work, whether fiction or nonfiction.
We’ll look at examples from Vladimir Nabokov, Joan Didion and Joseph Mitchell; feel free to bring excerpts in which your own favorite authors develop characters.
This casual, interactive session will also address the ways that character-creation is a great growth experience for authors themselves, an exercise in empathy that provides fresh energy and perspectives.
Have you been wrestling with a writing/creativtiy/business question you’d like to have discussed at an upcoming Roundtable? Send it to nevadawriters (at) gmail (dot) com  and state whether you would like to be the discussion moderator, or have someone else moderate.
(WSN’s Writers Roundtables are intended for WSN Members but we welcome visitors interested in joining our community of working writers.)
