Bleeding, Scabbed and Scarred by N.R. Masters (OWFI notes by Jennifer McMurrain)

Bleeding, Scabbed, and Scarred: How to Write Ugly Stories that Sell was about writing personal traumatic experiences.

You want to BLEED words onto paper

Basis of what happened
Lot's of it
Everybody is not going to care
Except about the
Drama that happens within it

You can't allow emotions or fear to interfere (what will momma think?)

Make sure your wounds have SCABBED over before you submit.

If the SCAR is still too fresh, trying writing it from another person's viewpoint.

*I missed some of this workshop searching for my bag that I had left in another workshop.
