Codex Writer’s Workshop.

I anticipated this event for a long time.

The first few days were for critiques of novels and short stories, as well as some class sessions on writing and being a writer. We had the famous Ellen Datlow critique our short stories. She was very insightful and gave lots of comments to everyone. We also had David Coe come for dinner one night; after which we picked his brain with questions.

The last week or so was just a retreat time where we could relax and write and explore Chattanooga, Tennessee.

I’ll post more later about what happened and what I learned.

NaNoWriMo 2007

I participated in National Novel Writing Month last year, and it was lots of fun to meet other writers and to just churn out words.

I had trouble with it at first, but this year I am going to do a bit more planning up front. We’ll see how that works.

    The Very Beginning

       Posted by: Garrett Tags: , ,

    OK, so this may not actually be the extreme beginning of my writing career, but I’ll get to that. This is the beginning of my blogging about what I’ve done and where I want to go.

    It’s also the beginning of starting this website up: Dedicated to giving part-time, beginning writers all the information they need to make it along the path to publication.

    Why now?

    I got back from Orson Scott Card’s Writing Boot Camp a little over a week ago, and it really changed my perspective on writing and the whole process. So, this seems like a great time to jump in and get started!
