This is the title of my workshop for the Chicago Zine Fest, which is coming up on March 25-26, just a few weeks from now. I had a different title before, but now I'm changing the workshop to focus on the rewrite process, at the request of the organizers. So I didn't want to use the word rewrite in the title, or edit, or draft, because I know that often frightens people away. I want to make it fun, not dreary. So I've been retooling (rewriting, I could say) my talk, and I came up with this brilliant title. I like it because it reminds me of "Getting To Yes," a classic book about negotiating, and I think of rewriting as a process of negotiating with yourself. I also think I'm clever because of the double play on Z: as an alphabet letter, at the end of the alphabet, and as the first letter of the word zine. Am I some kind of genius or what? Thank you.
Now I have to go back to working on the description. This was my break.
