Wordsowers Christian Writers Group met Thursday night at the Rockbrook Garden Cafe, 108th and Center.
Matt Meyer, a soon to be senior, presented “How to build the substance of a story,” from the book, STORY by Robert McKee , Chapter 7. After Matt shared the ideas he gleaned from the chapter, we completed an exercise on building character. Although I own the book STORY, it’s been awhile since I read it. I gained insight from the exercise. The rest of the group commented how much they learned, too. Thanks Matt.
Welcome our newcomer, Cynthia Mandel
