Learn how to access a deeper place to write from while at the same time addressing aspects of the craft of writing fiction. For novelists, short story writers, or anyone interested in jump starting their creative juices.  "Experimenting with your process is a way to open yourself up to new possibilities," writes Grant Faulkner of NaNoWriMo, the month-long marathon of writing a novel in one go. If the most important thing you learn is more about how YOU personally function best as a writer, you have scored. Nabokov is said to have written an entire novel on notecards. Edith Stillwell is said to have lain in an open coffin before writing to inspire the macabre she wished to evoke. If writing is about generating the atmosphere of a specific time and place, how do you do that? In this two-part workshop, first engage in a short relaxation lesson that frees you of the tension and preoccupation with responsibility and duty which blocks creativity, and then learn how to use Insight Journaling to move into clarity about best practices that work for you. For if we become what we do, then you have to start to engage with what works, rather than belaboring what doesn't!
