You've been working on this novel for a while, or you've recently started a new manuscript, and you're wondering where your mojo went. You may feel lost, muddled, or just a tad bored. You're not sure what's going on exactly, but you're spending more time on the Internet than on the page. It's time to (re)discover your story's spark! What is this story really about? Why has it chosen you to write it? What aspects of the story thrill or excite you most? In this seminar, we'll use a variety of prompts and conversational techniques to connect you more deeply with the heart of your story and the elements that speak to your creative core. You'll leave with a clearer sense of what your story is really about and with a toolbox of tricks for keeping that creative fire going on the long road ahead.
