Did you ever wonder why one day you get stuck on a project while on another day your writing flows easily? Doesnâ€™t it seem like sometimes your brain is actually fighting you? Well, maybe it is.
Recent insights into the structure of the human brain and how the parts work together (or donâ€™t) provide powerful techniques to free yourself and get writing again. You actually have three brains in your skull, and these simple techniques can get them talking to each other. Your brain will work for you, not against you.
This class will help you learn how to be more effective in your writing and use these techniques in the rest of your life. Using your current work in progress, Susan and Harry Squires will show you how to solve problems (including writerâ€™s block,), make your characters and plots deeper and more resonant, and create a book that keeps your reader turning pages.
In this four week workshop, the Squires will present six lessons, each with exercises that let you practice and refine the techniques discussed. Youâ€™ll get individual feedback and for the final lesson youâ€™ll be able to submit five manuscript pages or a three-page synopsis for individual coaching and help.
Susan and Harry Squires have gotten great feedback on this class, and look forward to sharing these productive techniques with others.
