Where do you keep and grow your ideas? What do you do with the ones that come around only when you’re working on something else?
We’ll talk tricks and tools of the trade for using journals (bullet and otherwise) as well as online task trackers and email to keep your ideas corralled and findable later.
Then we’ll look at methods for brainstorming a batch of stories and expanding those into broader creative pages, and from there into story drafts.
Suggested supplies: A bound journal (plain or dotted works best for me, your preference), several different colored pens, colored pencils, tape, stickers, as needed.
Join Norton Award winning author Fran Wilde, author of Updraft, Cloudbound, and The Jewel and Her Lapidary for a workshop that will energize your creativity and get you writing! The workshop takes place Saturday, June 2, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time.
Fair warning from Fran: My friend Tempest saw my story journal and that I was thinking about teaching this class and said MAKE IT SO and then disappeared in a cloud of glitter and swooshy capes.
Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.
Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues).
To register for this class, send an email with the following details:
- The email address that you use for Google stuff
- Which class or classes and the dates
- Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.
Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.
Important! Remember every class has several free Plunkett scholarships for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.
