June 2021 Brilliant Bundle
Dive into your summer writing plan with this trio of brilliant classes.
We understand how launching out into a goal, a dream, a serious endeavor like writing a novel is, well, daunting. You have the fire, the idea, the characters, but how do you keep going?
Especially with a brand new year!
With summer around the corner, now is the perfect time to dive into honing your writing skills. Our June 2021 Brilliant Bundle offers a trio of lessons to help with your writing journey.
Let's begin with...
Deep Work: Making the Most of Your Writing Time
Deep Work, based on the book by Cal Newport, Deep Work, is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive twenty-first-century economy. And yet, most people have lost the ability to go deep--spending their days instead in a frantic blur of e-mail and social media, not even realizing there's a better way. Let's learn the better way!
In this class, Susie May will walk you through the whys of flipping the switch from multi-task to mono-task, showing you not only why, but HOW to find that focus and produce the best work of your life.
Get the Story on the Page
Have you been working on a story idea and yet haven't figured out how to craft your first scene? Or, are you stuck in the process? In this class, Susie May will share how to break through writer's block and get the story on the page. First, she'll teach you how to tell yourself the story to create a map through your novel. Then, she will teach you how to learn the techniques for discovering the Inciting Incident, and the first scene! You CAN write something brilliant!
Tech with Tari
During this class, Tari Faris, our special projects manager, introduces an add-on in Microsoft Word, looks at different apps, and gives a brief introduction to macros. She offers tips for Mac users and PC users.
