Does procrastination keep you from starting, or do you have so many ideas you don’t know which one to choose? Maybe you want to write a novel but don’t have an idea of what it would be about. This class will teach you how to get past all these barricades. We will discuss how to get started on your writing project and will put pen to paper. By the end of the second class you will know how to keep going and what to expect along the way.
