About This Workshop
Have you ever been to a workshop, online or at a conference, where you saw some FABULOUS NEW WAY to plot/edit/write/create your book/story/novella? And been all fired up about it - until you tried it on your own, and it fell flat? It SEEMED like such a wonderful concept - so why did it feel like such a chore to implement, and in the end, make you feel like a failure?
Well, you are NOT a failure! But you’ve probably been using systems designed for brains that work differently from yours. As an award-winning and bestselling author, with a Master’s in Teaching, Kerry Blaisdell will show you how your Learning Style affects every aspect of your writing, from your first word on the page, to the nitty-gritty of the editing phase.
Stop trying to force someone else’s creative process onto yours - instead, discover how your brain works, then make it work FOR you! In this one hour live zoom workshop, Kerry will help you figure out your own Learning Style, then give tips for a more effective writing and editing process, based on what works for each of the three main Learner Types (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic) and various subtypes.
At the end of the workshop, there will be thirty minutes allocated for questions and answers.
