Attendees shared an afternoon with the affable Kendra Levin, a Senior Editor at Viking Books and a certified life coach for writers and artists (kendralevin.com). She opened the afternoon by discussing writing with intention and connecting with the ideal reader. To boil it down, successful authors "create for an audience of one" (Kurt Vonnegut). The exercise involved thinking of a character, being specific in the details and writing something for that character.
Attendees learned what their monster was that kept them from reaching their writing goals and also, what their character wanted to tell them after a meditation exercise.
Thank you, Kendra, and our attendees for a wonderful afternoon!
