WELCOME TO WORDS + PICTURES… a class in my Kick the Cobwebs series of Writing Exercises for Creative Inspiration!

Every writer experiences the doldrums when practicing our craft. The tsunami of creativity has reduced itself to nothing more than a toilet ripple. It feels less like writer's block and more like "Writer's Great Wall of China!" 

In this series, I share some fun writing challenges that will kick the cobwebs from the vacant attic space of your brain and let creative inspiration move in! 

ABOUT THIS CLASS:

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words and we will be putting it to the test with a fun visual writing challenge.

Life begins outside your comfort zone and so does creativity. Hopefully, this exercise will help you stretch beyond the boundaries of your “regular” writing.  In the end, I hope this activity becomes a part of your writing practice to keep the doldrums at bay. 

LESSON OVERVIEW:

  • Welcome + Introduction: A little bit about me and a quick overview of the class.
  • Inspiration: I do practice what I preach so I share with you how I personally use this exercise for creative inspiration. 
  • The Project: What you'll need and the steps to complete the Words + Pictures exercise.
  • Challenge Yourself: Ways to take this exercise up a notch to challenge your creativity. 
  • Final Thoughts: Share your work with us and your thoughts about how this project worked for your creativity. 

THIS CLASS IS FOR YOU IF…

  • You’re a professional or aspiring writer working on a project you plan to publish but the once full well of ideas has run dry.
  • You’re just starting your writing practice and you need a creative boost.
  • You’re not currently experiencing any creative blocks, but you’d like to be ready to kick the cobwebs when you do. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

  • A new (and fun) way to jump-start your imagination when you experience creative blocks.
  • How to use imagery to help you develop stories, characters, themes, settings, etc.
