I love learning what people’s creative dreams are! And so many of you want to write. If that’s you, I have two great resources for you! Please share in the comments below other resources you love for writers.
Writership is a virtual year-long program starting March 1st, that delivers structured information about dreamtime, writing, revision, and publishing in a simple, manageable way throughout the year.
It is co-founded and co-led by Jennifer Hritz, a long-time friend and client –whose first two award-winnig books I have been honored to be a part of!
Along with her other two co-founders, Alyssa Archer and Leslie Watts, they bring over a half-century of experience in writing, editing, and teaching to Writership. They are committed to guiding and supporting writers from all walks of life to more easily access their creative genius, release their fear, hone their craft, and most importantly, tell their stories.
There’s a whole variety of support, and different levels you can particpate in. if you want to join them, be sure to use the special coupon code “KATHERINE” to save $50 off total program or $5/month off the payment plan. (how delightful–I’ve never had a coupon code named after me before!)
You can find out all about it (as well as their free writing workshops) at www.writership.org.
The Creative Compass: Writing Your Way from Inspiration to Publication is a new writing book by father-daughter team Dan Millman and Sierra Prasada. Most definitely a writers book on the craft of writing, it thoughtfully breaks down the stages of writing –whether fiction or non fiction. They put special emphasis on the development stage of writing–something that new writers often completely miss. Full of wisdom and great storytelling, it is a great addition to your writer’s shelf. (just make sure you’re writing too–not just reading about writing !)
On a humorous note, I laughed out loud when I read that the first phase of Dan Millman’s personal writing process is pre-procrastination: “when I know I’ll be procrastinating soon, but I’m not yet ready to commit.”
I didn’t know it was possible to refine procrastination to that level–but I was pleasantly surprised–as well as delighted and validated to learn the other phases of his proceses, which so closelyresemble so many of my own experiences–both in writing and other projects.
