North Baltimore Chapter: Writers' Block Workshop

July 23, 2020
7:00 PM

North Baltimore Chapter Zoom Meeting

Have your pencil and paper ready to take notes from CJ Crowe!

Are you feeling frozen inside? Stuck in your head? Locked-up? Unable to write? Do you have a story idea in mind, but something is thwarting the starting process? Are you starting to feel discouraged, demoralized, inadequate? Most writers will agree they have suffered through the creative agony that sometimes develops inside one of these scenarios. There must be some outside-of the-box technique to help get back outside-of-the-box!

This writers block workshop introduces a technique known as Common Sense Writing, which explores using sensory isolation as a means to get out of your head and, instead, develop ideas from different perspectives. Common Sense Writing is useful for getting ideas flowing and also for adding depth and detail to existing works. Writers are asked to bring an idea they’ve been batting around that has defied further development, a current piece that feels incomplete, and/or a creative mind feels frozen and frustrated. This will be a hands-on evening!

CJ Crowe is the founder and primary writer for Do or Die Productions, a company producing comedic, interactive dinner theatre shows, primarily in the murder mystery genre. Her writing credits are eclectic and generally based on their ability to generate income, so she won’t bore you with them here. She is also a teaching artist in the Anne Arundel County Performing and Visual Arts Magnet Program. To learn more about CJ and her work, visit
