So, I have something a little different to share with you today, friend. As you’ve probably noticed I usually write my posts, but this week I decided to shake things up. Are you ready for this? *dramatic pause* I’ve created my first YouTube video.
Yep, an actual video. With me talking. And saying all the things. And stepping wayyyyyy outside of my comfort zone.
So what did I whip up for you?
Well, of course I couldn’t keep my first video simple, because that would make too much sense. Instead, I’ve created a 35-minute mini-workshop called Intro to Creative Writing, complete with a free 17-page workbook. (Excessive, yet epic, no?)
This workshop is meant to be a companion/prequel to my Writing 101 series. While the Writing 101 series teaches you the basics of fiction writing like developing your plot, characters, setting, etc., the Intro to Creative Writing workshop introduces you to the world of writing. It covers things like the writing and publishing process, how to make a living as an author, myths about writing a novel, and more.
Basically, this is everything I wish I had known about writing before I started my first novel.
Also, as I’m still figuring out this whole video thing I hope you’ll forgive the imperfections ; )
So, what do you think? Did you find the video helpful? Would you like to see more workshops like this in the future? Please share your thoughts below!
