Choose Your Words Carefully
Saturday 10/3/15
2:00-5:00 pm

Mark Twain said that the difference between the right word and the nearly right word is the same as that between lightning and the lightning bug. Storytellers of all skills and disciplines will benefit from this fun and insightful look at the language they choose for their creative writing. Participants will learn how to develop their own unique writing voice, how to use a thesaurus wisely, how to write powerful metaphors and similes, and how to avoid clich├ęs. Presented by local author and writing instructor, Lindsay Schopfer. Sponsored by the Friends of the Tumwater Timberland Library. This event is part of Timberland Reads Together - a one book, one community reading program.


Making the Most of Your Writing Time
Saturday 10/10/15
2:00-5:00pm

“I only write when I'm inspired, and I make sure I'm inspired every morning at 9 a.m.” Learn how to turn off your inner critic and make the most of the time you set aside to practice your craft. Participants will learn how to create a writing-friendly environment, manage and prepare for their writing time and how to measure success rather than focus on artificial deadlines. Presented by local author and writing instructor, Lindsay Schopfer. Sponsored by the Friends of the Tumwater Timberland Library. This event is part of Timberland Reads Together - a one book, one community reading program.
