2010 and a new class

New Year's are a funny thing. Just a date on a calendar. And yet we invest the date with such meaning. Maybe it's because it's so useful to have a reason to stop and rethink our priorities and our lives and the patterns with which we live them. The New Year is a chance to do just that.

If we're writers and we're writing about the new year, it can be really useful to consider how the people in what we're writing react. What they choose to look at and changes they choose to make or even the choice not to do these things highlights personalities in a very powerful way and create emotional points of connection for readers of the story or article.

I am offering an entirely new class this new year. It's for the Beau Monde and a real bargain. Here's the link to my class 7 Days of Motivation which is about jumpstarting your writing for 2010. Since it's being offered by the Beau Monde, you need to sign up through that link.

I hope that 2010 brings all of us joy, increasingly good health, love and much success in everything you do!

Mayra,

Thanks for stopping by. Book in a Week is literally trying to write the first draft of a book in one week. It's not as crazy as it sounds and even if a writer just does it once, it's a chance to discover in just one week so much about oneself as a writer and about the book one is writing. It's a chance to have incredible fun and freedom because after all, if it's only one week, you can break all the rules and let yourself take risks. After all, if it doesn't work, you've only lost one week and how often do we put off writing longer than that because we're afraid we won't get it "just right?" Somewhere on my blog I've got a long post about why I love BIAW and I even teach it as a 5 week class--3 weeks prep, 1 week intensive writing and 1 week analyzing the experience and wrapping up.
