About This Class
So you’re a writer, huh? How’s your writer’s journey going? Thirsty hungry and tired yet? Blisters on the feet? Not to mention fingers. Did anyone give you the lowdown before you started?
I thought not. Nobody told you you’d be schizo from your double life, bleary from your double vision, and staggering from sleep deprivation, malnourishment and exhaustion. Now you’re worried you’ve run out of road before you’re even halfway down it.
Relax. I have a survival package for you. Stuff I learnt the hard way.
Here’s what we’ll cover.
- Welcome and Focus – why am I doing this?
- Eat Properly – food for the soul is not enough.
- Take a Break – revive the sunken spirit.
- Posture – more important than you know.
- Seeing straight – care for your eyes.
- Sleep – do you get enough?
- Targets & Deadlines – is there a difference?
- Works Space and Organisation – why it matters.
- Pace Yourself – the long haul.
- Wind Up and Summary.

About My Classes
My mission is to help you feel more confident about your writing. I'm not here to tell you whether your writing is "good" or "bad", but to help you conquer doubt, improve your creativity.
My longer classes include practical advice and writing tools.
My shorter classes are about getting you to think, peel back the layers, think out of the box, and any other cliché you'd like to add. I want to help you sharpen your focus, strengthen your resolve and ask questions like "Why do they do it like this?", "What made this writer successful?"
If you have a question you'd like answered in a class, please post it up in a discussion.
You will only find classes by me on Skillshare. I don't publish to other platforms, so make sure you get your Premium Membership. Ping the @Free_Skillshare twitter account, and keep checking in to Skillshare free classes by all teachers. You'll get the special deal: 3 months for 99c. How's that for a bargain?
I'm an experienced web content writer, blogger, screenwriter and fiction writer. I love reading and writing, web technologies, media, travelling, and I adore the movies.
I hold a BSc in Technology (Open University) and a BSc in Information Technology (University of Reading, UK).
Publications: Far Out, a YA Fantasy (fiction), and Writing Fiction - What I wish I'd Known When I started (non fiction), both available on Amazon.
I co-wrote Gates of Hades the movie, currently in pre-production.
