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?

(And 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.

Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. - Goethe

Hi. I'm Susan May Warren. I started writing while I lived in Siberia (yes, you heard that right--cold, snowy, Siberia). Alone. No one to help me, overwhelmed and not a little discouraged. Eighteen years later, I've published over 80 books in five different genres, have landed on numerous bestseller lists (including USA Today), won the RITA, CHRISTY and CAROL awards (and others) and started a school for novelists.

I've learned a few things along the way (beyond techniques on how to stay warm in the tundra!) Most importantly I learned that if I wanted to be published, I had to figure out how to write a book, how to edit it, how to step back from my stories, look at them with a critical eye, figure out what a good manuscript looks like, and then use my unique voice to make that happen.

I'd like to teach you how to write a good book. Edit it...and then, we'll talk about selling it.
