March Online Workshop: March 12 – April 6, 2018
Keep Creativity Alive with Instinctual Writing
with Jill Badonsky, M.Ed.
About the Class:
“What can we writers learn from lizards, lift from birds, In quickness is truth. The faster you blurt, the more swiftly you write, the more honest you are.” ~Ray Bradbury
Writing is a celebration of who we are and of all the stories, images, and beliefs we have inside that are singularly ours. There are as many forms of creativity as there are people – if we trust our instincts and get out of the way of our fears, habits, and incarcerating perfectionism, our unique voice can more effortlessly emerge. The more we find ways to love our writing, the easier it will be to show-up.
In this fun, 5-week workshop learn at least six ways you can tap into your instincts, intuition, and imagination to generate new ideas, breathe new life into your writing, and rekindle your romance with the creative process. Includes MP3 of a guided imagery followed by guided writing to trigger your instincts.
