It’s November and the writing blogs have all turned their attention to the novel. What’s a short story writer to do?
For while we love our novel-writing fellows, we lovers of the short story don’t always want to write novels in November. Or maybe we’re just not in a novel-place right now. Sometimes we just want to write stories. Sometimes it’s just as hard to sit down and write a short story as it is to sit down and write a novel. And we get grumpy in November, when we’re forgotten about.
Well grump no more.
The StoryADay Warm Up Course is back, but this time it’s personal.
I’ve beefed up the course with personal coaching calls and expanded materials, without losing any of the awesome results-driven focus of the original course. This time you get at least one personal call with me as well as a Q&A teleseminar. You also get worksheets to keep track of your progress (and I’ll be asking to see them!)
That’s right, it’s a Bootcamp and I’m your drill sergeant, only friendlier. A friend-sergeant. A drill-friend. Something.
The course starts on Monday November 18, 2013. Three weeks later you’ll have:
- 10 completed stories under your belt,
- More story ideas than you can use in a month, and a method for generating them forever, so you need never again fear the blank page,
- The confidence to know you can make writing an on-going part of your life,
- Practice and discovery of your best working habits.
- Coaching that cuts through your excuses and helps you find a way to write every day, not someday.
(until midnight Sunday, 17, 2013)
But wait, there’s more
(Yeah, I said it)
Bonus Coaching Sessions
You can also add on four additional coaching sessions (one for each of the second and third weeks of the course, one at the end to launch you into the next phase of your writing life, and another one a few weeks later to make sure you’re still on track).
During these 45 minute sessions we can tackle:
- Creative blocks
- Time management
- Story points
- Your plan for developing your writing career
And I will critique one of your stories each week, to review your progress and help with your writing development.
If you’re really serious about getting your writing life in gear, this kind accountability will make the difference between wishing and doing.
