August. The dog days of summer.

The O.C. Writers Monthly Update

Whether your spending this time laying by the pool, hiding in air conditioned rooms, or running away on adventures near and far, let’s take a moment to appreciate our surroundings.

This month on the blog, we’re discussing all things setting, everything from how to develop stronger atmosphere in our writing, to the settings we work best in. How do you incorporate the five senses into your work? What environmental triggers do you use to motivate your daily writing habits?

But if you’re feeling less than inspired to actually sit down and write in this heat, our first ever O.C. Writers writing contest might be just the ticket to jumpstart your progress!

What are you doing on your summer vacation?

Next Month

We’ll be talking about education next month. Are you doing your own MFA program? Share some of your favorite writing books, classes, things you’ve learned throughout your illustrious (or not so illustrious) writing career. Check the submission guidelines and submit your articles to Megan@OCWriters.Network by Saturday, August 25th.
