A short post on the comings and goings of the Rogues Gallery Writers. We meet nearly every Tuesday evening. We go over the plot lines of our book – The Method Writers which is shaping up nicely. Each of us is writing a character who is a member of a writers group and is writing a book.
The twist of this book is that the characters decide to try something they dub ‘method writing’ after the similar occurrence in acting labeled ‘method acting’. The characters decide to pursue some aspect of the book they’re writing by physically experiencing whatever it is they want THEIR characters to experience. One of the writers is incorporating a bank robbery into her story so she plans out and executes a bank robbery. Another character is writing about a character that gets involved in the sex scene, so that writer dives into the world of sex.
The fun of this book is that our characters interact with each other and we must make sure we’re all on the same page. The book is being written with a lot of dark humor which should make it fun for the reader as well as getting the reader to invest in the characters. We are working at making this a big deal. We’ve planned to film a ‘Mockumentary’ about the project, again with loads of dark humor. We also are planning to come up with playing cards, trading cards, calendars, mugs, t-shirts and other promotional material.
