Using this opportuntity to mention that I was out of town last week and did not get to write. A sudden obligation means I may decide to put active participation in workshop on hold. It's something exciting and I'll have to see how my progress goes because I have a deadline. I may hold the assignments to complete later. Thanks Tanya, for your efforts.

I have to ask???
How does one apropriately give feedback on a freewrite such as these this week? To me, the writers are writing about thier life, thier feelings. thier experiences, thier outlook. How does one give feedback on that? To me, it is all so real, there is nothing more to say.
If it were a story, or a poem, then I can see it.
Could somebody shed light?

The only feedback I could presume to give anyone (with these freewrites)would be to share how reading a piece affected me, or a particular segment of a piece that seemed very fresh or poignant. Some of these freewrites are going to be used to put together a birth monologue, right? So maybe commenting on those and pointing out something that worked exceptionally well in those pieces would help the writer decide how to put it together into her monologue later when the time comes?

Thank you for that It makes more sense to me now. I wasn't sure if there was some writers code for giving feedback I was missing out on.:LOL


Can somebody tell me what exactly a monologue is? I have heard of them, even read a few, but is there a giudeline to follow when writing one? What are the typical ingredients? I have tried to search it on the web, and wel let's just say what I came up with had nothing to do with writing.

I'd say that a monologue would be a dialogue with yourself...it literally means "speaking alone" and "a passage or composition, in verse or prose, presenting the words or thoughts of a single character"...it could also mean the same but in a play as in a soliloquy, also "a play, skit, or recitation for one actor only." (Webster's)

Thanks zen

I am trying to work on it. It has not come very easily to me, I keep wanting to write in the third person.
Plus, time is not on my side lately...too many things to do. I wll get back into this as soon as the holidays are over.
