You get the key to your creative imagination in the first ten minutes! For the rest of the day, you’ll be exploring ever deeper. You’ll have a good laugh, get more confidence, encouragement, revelations, surprises, at least five new, intriguing characters, who knows how many ideas for plots and sub-plots, and cake. These are guaranteed*.
You’ll maybe also make new friends who become your close writing support group; you could find your true writing voice; you could even come away with such a fantastic new idea for a book that you have to go home and write it immediately (someone did just that on the very first course); you might be sitting next to the next JK Rowling. You might BE the next JK Rowling… or EL James… or PD James…
There’s nothing difficult about the day, except perhaps resisting the temptation of more cake. You need no special skills, no qualifications or experience. I’ll guide you through everything, and there are no wrong answers. You’ll be successful from the moment you start to write (unless you refuse to try at all).
The emphasis of the whole day is on writing. Finally understanding the extent of your imagination, and the ways you can dive in and discover great ideas whenever you need them. Getting your ideas out of your head and on to a page. Going home with ideas for potential blockbusters. Thrilled by what you’ve realised about your talents. Excited by your creative future, and aware of your potential.
Through the day you’ll be writing in concentrated, intense bursts. This is not going to be a lecture, where you listen to me talking all day and go away inspired but frustrated. This is you, working very hard, writing and sharing – learning by doing.
Between the writing frenzies, there will be questions and answers, feedback on what you’ve written (if you like – there’s no need to disclose anything if you don’t feel like it), discussion about what you’ve discovered and felt, exploring your inner world and noting down your feelings and experiences. There are also plenty of breaks for refreshment and chat.
By the end of the day you’ll be exhausted, with your head crammed with ideas, excited and confident about driving your story to completion and publication.
Then all you’ve learned about writing techniques, story structure, pace, dialogue, etc – and the insider knowledge of publishing, marketing and selling your books – will all come together and turn your 3D ideas into 4D reality, as e-book, printed book, TV series or movie.
* I’ll make you a money-back guarantee: if you don’t go away with these benefits from the day, you’ll get back the whole fee for the course.
