Greetings all, and Happy New Year!
This is a challenge of a different sort.
In about two weeks I will be conducting a workshop for a few friends.
The topic will be "Busting the Block" or, "How to Beat Writer's Block in a Bookstore".
I have a couple of ideas, and I think they might work, but I would like to tap into the creativity of this prolific group for some inspiration.
Here's the setting:
We meet in a Barnes & Noble during retail business hours and there are shoppers and browsers and readers all around. There is an in-house coffee shop. The group is small and we meet here several times a year. Some write frequently, others not. A very few have published small editions or perhaps a single chapbook. The age range will likely be from the early 20s to 80+, mostly gals, few guys. The idea, of course, is to write your poem(s) while there in the busy bookstore. I will have no more than an hour and a half to pull this off.
