Every Shoe Tells a Story

Last Thursday night I had the privilege of speaking for the Bay County Public Library. November is National Novel Writing Month, also known as NANOWRIMO, and I kick started day 2 of the Library’s events. My workshop, titled Every Shoe Tells a Story, was inspired by award-winning author Adrian Fogelin. She visited my middle school several years ago and conducted a similar workshop, in which attendees select a unique shoe and create a character from the ground up. It’s an excellent story starter. Participants leave with a new character, one they can potentially write a story with; making it perfect for NANOWRIMO (the goal of the contest is to write a 50,000-word novel in one month).

Anyway, check out the few photos I took from the event. It was a lot of fun!
