Seven Ideas in Seven Days
LEARN TO SEE, HEAR, AND THINK LIKE A WRITER

This course has some great techniques for generating ideas and expanding on them. I’ve got some new ideas, and have expanded on another idea that has been rumbling around for quite a while. It’s gone in quite the opposite direction to what I thought it would, but that’s good!

Great ideas are the bedrock of storytelling and writing. Sometimes they come thick and fast, and sometimes they seem to languish in the dank cellar of your subconscious and refuse to come out to play. All those ideas are in there though, hiding in your brain, just waiting for the spark that sets them free. In this fun and fast-paced seven day course, we’ll work with you through ways to feed your brain, germinate those idea-seeds (seedy ideas?) and keep stories tumbling out of your head.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section tab_id=”1570293069387-b07b8985-01f7dc50-5bb5″ title=”CURRICULUM”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]DAY 1: WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW That doesn’t mean turning the daily tedium of your commute in to an 800 page experimental novel DAY 2: AN AUTHOR THOUGHT UP A KILLER TITLE, AND YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT Can you retrofit a story idea from a cool title?

Enrol Once you’ve joined you’ll get an email confirming your place and explaining how you access the course. Spoiler: you click a link. Super simple. 2. Read, watch, do The lessons are a mix of text, images, videos and exercises. To get the most out of the course, try to give yourself at least an hour a day to read or watch the material and do the exercises. We’ve made them as bite-size as possible but also if you wanna do the thing you gotta do the work. 3. No rush This course is written to be done over 7 days but if you miss a day or something comes up, don’t panic! Go at your own pace. We’ll be waiting for you in the community forums when you’re ready to catch up. 4. No money? No problem Periodically we run this course as a freebie so please make sure you’re on our newsletter list to get notifications of that. Alternatively, if you can’t wait and have no cash, have a look at our bursary scheme. 5. Milk no sugar Drink plenty of tea, stock up on biscuits, gin for later. Enjoy it. It’s supposed to be fun. Love you. Mwa.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section tab_id=”1570294476168-e2773d62-62e5dc50-5bb5″ title=”WHAT YOU GET”][vc_column_text]
