The Writers' Way

A new year. A new notebook. A new plan.

Do you want to write your book? Start writing again? Finish a creative project?  In this session, we'll jumpstart our creative lives with inspirational ideas and writing techniques designed to help us develop a regular writing/creative practice. We will set goals, define our projects, and explore dozens of ways to use a writers' notebook (or laptop) to capture ideas, think differently, stretch our minds,  improve our writing and develop the creative habit. In addition to the notebook, we will look at other apps, tools and tricks to evoke the muse whether she shows up at our desk each morning or not.
