How to Start a Story--and Finish It!

Instructor: Jason Aydelotte

     It's the question authors get more often than any other, except perhaps 'How do I get published?' - and with the help of this workshop, you'll finally have an answer! Think you've only got one book/story/whatever in your creative brain? Au contraire, mon frer! In this workshop, we will explore how to generate great ideas—and how to, day-after-day, week-after-week, keep creating great ideas, until we develop our writerly selves into powerhouses of inspiration. Along with attuning ourselves to ways that we can abide in our native creativity, author and publisher Jason Aydelotte will share tips and tricks, covering everything from downloadable writing apps to methods that fortify our everyday 'sticktoitiveness.’ We will discuss getting the important bits down, and how to go from those bits to the outline stage and beyond. Learn how to turn everyday objects into the genesis of a new story, and fill your "Stuff I've Written" box to overflowing!
