The Weave Of Writing:A Fiction Writing Program That Fits Your Lifestyle Many of my students come to me because they once loved writing but haven’t written for years, or they’ve always dreamed of writing and are ready to start now.
Something they all have in common is the desire to weave writing into their lifestyle. This is something I’m very good at; you don’t have to write three hours a day to follow your passion or to make great strides in your writing. Many of my students have just the idea for a story. Others have only a beginning. If this sounds like you, I’ve come up with a program that allows my students to fit their writing into their daily activities, whatever their schedule may be. Some write once a week, some write a few times a week, others write occasionally, but all are thinking about their story frequently. And when we work together, simply thinking about your story becomes a successful technique.
The Weave Of Writing
I teach you all you need to know to make your writing easy and fun.
We work in a way that fits into your life.
This program is very flexible, both financially and time-wise.
How This Unique Fiction Writing Program Works This program comes in four-hour plans, and you can use your time with me however you like. You may go a few weeks without a session, or we may talk every week, or we may talk on four consecutive days. Whichever way, this program weaves the techniques of fiction writing into a process that supports and inspires you throughout your daily life. Successful writing happens not only when you're sitting down at your computer, but also when you're thinking about your characters and plot at any time during the day, even when you’re not actually writing.
The foundation of this program is that writing should be fun! The only time it isn’t is when you’re staring at the Blank Screen and nothing appears. This is likely to happen when you don’t know where to go next with your plot. One of my techniques, which I call "What If”, will almost always cure this dilemma. But on a particular day, if it doesn’t, then don’t write. Go for a walk. Garden. Do yoga. Do whatever else you enjoy, and just think about your plot while you're doing it. Ideas will come to you when you’re not staring at the screen!
The Weave Of Writing differs from many other writing programs in that it is specifically geared to opening my students to the joy of writing without pressure. I created this unique program to support your long term success as a fiction writer.
Getting Started Your introductory session will be focused on my understanding you as a fiction writer, and determining the best plan to get you where you want to be. This is true whether you’re interested in writing short stories or are interested in developing into a novelist.
Whatever your writing goal, I have developed my own techniques for fiction writing that will help you achieve it. My students have ranged from authors of short stories, to one who signed a three-book publishing deal. With more than thirty years of teaching, I know how to work with both your strengths and your weaknesses, and together we shall enjoy traveling the Fiction Writer’s Journey!
The Introductory Session is $99.00
A One-Hour Introductory Session
Special Price: $99.00
We can start with just an idea, or as little as one scene you've written, or as much as ten pages.
If you decide to continue working with me, I'll credit this amount towards our future work together!
