Writing challenge – leap into writing

Sometimes we need a challenge to get writing – Here is mine.

For the next seven days, come up with one idea a day for a short story or a novel.

Are you sitting comfortably? Find a notebook and pen. Put on some music, close your eyes and let an idea drift into your mind. Sit there until an idea comes, it doesn’t have to be brilliant, any idea will do. Write a sentence describing it and then put your notebook away.

At the end of the week choose one of the sentences and give it a title. Focus on it and write a first short story draft or a rough synopsis for a novel. Keep the other ideas for another day.

If so, then this two-hour novel writing booster session is for you. Whether you’re an experienced fiction writer or a debut novelist it’s all too easy to veer off course, run aground or just find yourself blocked. In this session the focus will be on sharing the challenges that you are encountering in writing your novel, identifying and exploring techniques to overcome those challenges, and reclaiming your enthusiasm as a writer for the project. The emphasis will be on discussion and exercises so please bring a pen and paper.
