RWA ACADEMY SHORT COURSE: Get Organised, Get Writing

RWA ACADEMY SHORT COURSE: Get Organised, Get Writing

Get Orgaised, Get Writing - Short Course

The world has changed. Writers today not only have to write: we juggle friends, family, work commitments, stress levels, promotional and marketing efforts, social media and running our own business, not to mention finding time to relax and refill the creative well. This course will focus on goal setting to achieve your writing needs: we will discuss what you want to write and how to plan it into your day, how to write effective goals to get words on the page, which writing methods are best for you, and how to avoid getting derailed with everyday life interruptions.
