I had a great time at the Fall Fiction Festival at the Ralston Library this afternoon. Reading one’s work out loud is a great way to find holes in a scene. I practiced reading it a few times with my wife, and found some places in need of tweaking.
We really have a talented group of people in the Nebraska Writers Workshop. In addition to Repenter, we heard tales of biblical sadists, inept donut-store robbers, sympathetic western women of ill repute, fifteen-year old saviors, Hawaiian shirt-wearing vampires, and more.
Good exposure for the group as a whole, and each of us as writers.
