In LISTS, NOTES and GUTS we will discuss instinct, intuition, and observation as a means of producing short story first drafts.

We will talk about taking NOTES. All the time. Everywhere you go. Your writer’s eye should be open and on the lookout for sparkling details, strange truths, and unforgettable images. These notes we will compile, constantly, every day from now on. Then we will use them to make our LISTS. These lists will work as an aid, a support for when we falter, when our pens lift off the page. That is when we will trust our GUTS.

Bring ideas, images, notes, and some guts. We will compile lists and we will free-write our way to a first draft.
