Jack was recently a guest lecturer for Odyssey Writing Workshops Charitable Trust, and presented a piece on “Writing from the Wound.”
From their description:
Stories can gain great power when you explore things that truly trouble or disturb you. Jack advises that you ask yourself difficult questions. What really terrifies you? What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done? What awful thing have you fantasized about doing but would never do? What’s the worst thing that could happen to you or to your loved ones? What breaks your heart? Jack explores the process by which an author can truly know a character and gain empathy for that character through similar experiences or impulses. Remembering and recording your painful, damaging experiences can help you use those experiences later in stories. Fiction must be honest, and acknowledging and using those difficult experiences and forbidden thoughts can bring more honesty into your work.
This is one you won’t want to miss.
This lecture is now available as an mp3. You can find it on Odyssey’s Website, or right-click/”save as” here to download it.
