I have the cool writing community. Over the years, I’ve built a list of writing courses I thought would be fun to put together that’s about as long as my arm.
And I want to write fiction full-time…but all those ideas for cool courses are still pinging at the back of my mind.
So I finally figured out the RIGHT question…
(and if you’ve done any of my courses, you know how important the right question is).
This was the right question.
How could I write fiction full-time and STILL do courses?
And my Muse said, “Workshops, dummy.”
(Actually, that’s not exactly what my Muse said, but that’s the G-rated version.)
So I’ve thought about topics like:
- writing dialogue,
- writing humor,
- story structure,
- writing short stories,
- writing fantasy or SF,
- writing paranormal,
- One Good Hero & One Good Villain,
- 6-scene career-builder stories to self-publish,
- writing action,
- better conflict in your WIP,
…and on, and on…
But I’m not sure where your interest is. Or in what format you’d want to do a workshop. On the Boot Camp forums, obviously, so there would be feedback. The point of a workshop would be for me to look at what you’ve done and comment.
But would you be interested in low-priced “everyone-who-shows-up” workshops with minimal feedback? Or intermediate-priced workshops limited to fifty? Or more expensive workshops limited to ten or so?
On what subjects? For how long? A weekend? A full week? Two weeks?
This is all in the “I’m kicking it around stage,” and nothing is going to happen until I’ve finished WARPAINT, the HTTS Walkthrough, the How to Write A Series Extension, and Create A World Clinic. So mid-2013 at the earliest.
But I do better if I have some idea what to plan for. So let me know what would interest you, and if you want to be notified when I start actually doing these things, sign up for Workshop Notices on the form in the right column (red header, top of the page) or in the footer below..
