“Of all the things I could be doing, why do I feel compelled to write?” This is a question all writers ask at the start of their journey, and even during their lifetime. This nano course is dedicated to helping you establish your reason for writing. The lectures and exercises provided, encourage you to tease out ideas and goals, articulate aims and objectives, and understand why your story is worth sharing with the world! There are also some wider reading materials by the inspirational George Orwell — author of the famous essay, 'Why I Write'. The work you produce on this course can be used as a pick-me-up if you ever face that dreadful writers' block, lack a little confidence or feel demotivated. If you're taking an accredited creative writing course, consider adding the work you do here to your portfolio.

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!
