Jump-Start: Beginning a Piece of Work
Do you have a writing project of any genre that resists budging from the idea phase? Does the energy seep out of your prose as soon as you start to shape it? Does the pencil in your hand become a magic wand that causes inspiration to disappear?
Join author Erin Byrne in this two-part series.
When: July 13th & 27th 7-9pm PST
Price: $125 (includes both sessions)
In this 2 session workshop we will jump-start an individualized process that will transform your lit bulb into the written word.
We will spring forward from the brainstorm state, and move from letting loose our creative flow to forming this piece of work, using a process unique to the piece.
We will reign in our prose and tame the beast that is the unformed story.
We will delve into a plan to edit, polish, and burnish the piece to a shine so that it is ready for publication.
