Writing Without a Map/Revision Strategies
To write with an outline is to begin with a plan, and to know where you’re headed. But what happens if you determine not to plan, if you skip the outline and plunge ahead with nothing more than a few scraps of dialogue, an idea of something you want to explore, or even just a gut feeling? And then let’s say you’ve done that and you reached the end of a draft? Now what? In this two-part workshop, we’ll begin with letting go and allowing the work to surprise us, and then we’ll discuss revision strategies and techniques to bring those messy, exuberant first drafts under control.
