Getting ready for NaNoWriMo? Or just want to try building a daily writing practice? This class is for you.
Practice and warm-ups are fundamental to every artistic discipline, writing included. Especially when you’re gearing up to set down 50,000 words in 30 days. Doing a 10 – 20 minute writing exercise can help kick your brain into creative gear without pressure, give you the chance to try out new craft skills, or simply keep your writing muscles limber on days when you don’t have the time or energy to work on your work in progress.
That’s what this course is all about. Starting October 1, you’ll get a short writing exercise via email every day for a month. These exercises will help you get to know your characters better, dig into details of your setting, and play around with voice, point of view, and other aspects of craft. You can use them to prepare for NaNo or as warm-ups before getting to work on your current project.
Because many writers thrive on community and support, all participants will have access to a private chat space on Discord where they can share their experience with the exercises and support each other through the month. This is optional! You can also do the exercises on your own and never speak to anyone else ever. ;)
The course costs $40 and grants are available for those who can’t afford it.
