The Magic of Finding Your Story - Short Course
This course will focus on helping participants to connect deeply to their intuition so that they may find the perfect story to write. We will begin by exploring different ways of discovering story ideas, including the use of short, guided meditations and creative-writing exercises. By deepening our connection to our own inspiration, we encourage ideas to flow effortlessly. Next, we’ll practice sifting through ideas to find the gem and learn how to turn that idea into an interesting storyline. We will compare plotting and pantsing and trial both approaches. Finally, we will learn how to develop believable characters so that our story can shine. Each week, we will gather in a zoom call to discuss the week’s content and to encourage and inspire each other with our own experiences. At the end of the course, participants will be invited to submit a piece of writing of up to 2000 words for feedback. From here, this well-developed story idea has the best chance possible of going on to become a powerful writing project.
Just to be open to trying meditation as a way of finding inspiration for story ideas. (There is no need for previous meditation experience before starting the course)
