Lesson 5: The Wilderking Chant

Reflection Questions

Remember “Bayard’s Wisdom for Writers” from Lecture 5:

  • Start wherever you can start.
  • Tell the story that unfolds before you.
  • Live in the here-and-now, concrete world rather than the world of the big, abstract idea.

What are some tendencies in your own writing habits that make it hard for you to implement this advice? In what ways are you already implementing this advice? How can you build on that success?

Remember: to improve as a writer, building on success is at least as important as fixing problems.
