Have you ever thought you could write a novel that’s just as good as the ones you’re reading? Or better? Then you tried to write and got bogged down at getting it all down into your word processor. Your romance went flat or your characters dull. You want to pick up some writing tips and skills, but who has time for classes in this busy world? Here’s a solution:
www.storywonk.com and check out their seminars, classes and workshops. Minimal fees, and you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home, in your jammies, if you want. Most events are scheduled on Sunday afternoons, if you have plans, you can download them later. The classes have assignments, whereas the seminars are one afternoon only.
Why am I frontin’ for Storywonk? Well, for one, I like Lani’s books. I glommed onto her after reading Dogs and Goddesses, a book she’d collaborated on with Jenny Crusie and Anne Stuart, another couple of my favorite NYT bestselling authors. Then I picked up some of Lani’s own books and enjoyed them too, especially one titled The Fortune Quilt. I started following her blog online; always real, sometimes evocative, sometimes amusing, generally entertaining. AND, she’s having a contest. Out of all the people who repost about Storywonk, she’ll pick a few for a chance to attend a free seminar. That’s what I’m aiming for. Free.
Maybe go enter the contest yourself. Take a look at some of the topics and educational opps that Storywonk’s offering. Maybe you’ll be the next NYT bestselling author I follow on facebook.
