"The danger is greatest when the finish line is in sight. At this point, Resistance [procrastination or writers' block] knows we're about to beat it. It hits the panic button. It marshals one last assault and slams us with everything it's got. The professional [the writer] must be alert for this counterattack. Be wary at the end. Don't open that bag of wind."
-Steven Pressfield, The War of Art.
This introspective nano course has been developed for writers at all levels. Perhaps you’ve had a creative idea floating around for some time, but you’re not sure how you’ll bring it to life. Maybe you’ve visualised the end goal for a novel, film, play, web-series, poetry performance, etc, but you’re not sure how to get from A (the idea in your head) to B (the reality). The reading materials, support resources and quizzes will help you establish your ideas through brainstorming and reflexive practice. With guidance from the action plan template, you'll develop a creative writing strategy that will take the ideas you’ve brainstormed with the goals you’ve set and break them down into tasty, bitesize chunks that will blend into your routine, to ensure you’re writing and creating regularly, at a pace that suits you.
It's time to embrace your love for literature, establish the ideas you’ve had for a blog post, a poem, an essay, a novel, a script, etc, set manageable and fun goals, put those plans into action and inspire others as well as yourself in ways you never imagined, but were always capable of!

1) A brainstorming template

In 2010, I founded Scribble Ink Story Consultancy - a social enterprise dedicated to mentoring writers throughout their creative process. Scribble Online is one of three core writing services delivered by Scribble Ink. It exists to provide writers of all ages, backgrounds and abilities with creative writing eCourses that are flexible, affordable and fun. Each nano course available is equivalent to a 1-2 hour workshop. A combination of two or more nanos enables you to submit work for AQA accreditation, or as part of an Arts Award qualification, but equally, a certificate of completion after finishing one nano is great for the resume, creative productivity and personal development! Enroll today and share the many experiences my London-based writers enjoy during live sessions.
I'm so glad you've chosen to invite me on your creative journey, and I look forward to supporting you!
