And A Question…
All the December workshops are now live and available for sign up, but hold off on signing up until Sunday. We might be doing another half/price sale since this stupid pandemic is getting worse. We shall see. I will announce it one way or another on Sunday.
But both November and December workshops are now available, plus I will be moving the Endings, Romance, and Information Flow workshops to Classic in the next day or so.
The question we have is about a short, special, three-week workshop that we would offer. Kris and I have been talking about it and think it might really help some writers during this time. It would be available as well in the fourth quarter of the Decade Ahead Class, (which will go through all of next year as well, remember? As soon as we know what the decade ahead will look like.)
The workshop idea is titled HOW TO DEAL WITH COVID IN YOUR WRITING
The reason we are putting it into the Decade Ahead class, as well as offer it as a special three week workshop, is because writing stories set in the middle of this pandemic have issues, both in storytelling and in audience and in long-term sales. We write stories that will sell for decades and decades. This pandemic, even though it seems to last forever, will be a very limiting factor in fiction.
And the workshop will be limited in time as well, maybe only offer it two or three times this winter.
But how can any of us set a story in 2020 or 2021 now, without dealing with Covid?
So how do you handle Covid in fiction? Kris and I started thinking about it because of our own writing and we came up with a bunch of things to do, both simple and advanced.
It would be a three week workshop and cost $150 and open to anyone.
No requirement to take it if interested, but we would like to know if you are interested in that kind of focused special workshop. You can write me or just make a comment here.
If no interest, we won’t bother, but instead do a Pop-Up (same price but no assignments) and put that in the Decade Ahead.
