What Will I Learn?
  • 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, quizzes and writing exercises will help you establish your ideas through brainstorming and reflexive practice. You’ll also develop a creative writing strategy that will take the ideas you’ve brainstormed, the goals you’ve set and break them down into tasty, bite size chunks that will blend into your routine, to ensure you’re writing and creating regularly, at a pace that suits you.
  • At the end of this course you will have established your aims, methods and potential outcomes for any creative project you're working on, you'll have created a detailed action plan to help you ensure all goals are met, and you'll have either discovered or rediscovered the joy of mind maps, mood boards and beautiful sunsets!

Description

"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!

PS. This course has a new and improved handbook which includes...

1) A brainstorming template 

2) A SWOT analysis template 

3) A seasonal action plan template 

4) A bitesize action plan template 

5) A progress review template 

6) Useful links to external videos and texts 

7) Additional information about Scribble Ink

8) Discount vouchers for other Scribble Online nano courses 

Happy days! 

Who is the target audience?
  • This nano course has been especially successful with writers who balance a plethora of work and family commitments, those suffering with writers’ block, those who are great with brainstorming ideas but fall short at developing and executing them, and those keen to understand themselves and ideas that bit more.
  • Take this course if you're struggling to achieve your goals, wish to indulge in a fun, creative and vibrant exercise and/or you need help getting organised. Do not take this course if you suffer from any goal-setting related exercises.

Creative Writing eCourses by Scribble Ink Story Consultancy

Hey Friend!

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! 

Best wishes,

Nadia Gasper, MA.
