Clowns to the Left, Jokers to the Right: Stuck in the Middle of the Story
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
Arts and Humanities
Writing is too hard, a writer time too precious to waste those brilliant story starts, that half-finished novel, high-centered and clueless about how to get unstuck. Teachers use exercises to get their student stories started, but the real trouble lies down the road, doesn’t it. We’ve got exercises to fuel and shape projects in progress, to go deeper into character, develop plot; concrete tools to stick under that spinning drive wheel, get your motor runnin', headed down that highway.
