I have been working on the same WIP for awhile now. I am so completely stuck I am not sure where to go from here. It’s not that I don’t know the plot or the characters who how I want it to end. It’s that I am not sure how to structure it. I don’t know about you but my story ideas come out like…..forgive me….vomit. I start to hear a whisper of a story or a character’s name and then it all goes flying out at me. The problem is trying to catch it all before it floats out into the ether.
In the real world I am a Technology Manager. A computer geek. These skills I have always came easy to me. I have taken classes and learned on the job and I am very confident in my ability.
But with my writing….
I have never taken a writing class. I don’t know if it is necessary but sometimes I wonder if I am doing myself a disservice by not taking some form of class or workshop. Which brings me to my question.
Is there a benefit to a writing workshop and if so what is it?
Is it better to take a creative writing course at a college? Or is that a waste of time and money?
There are many purported writing classes and workshops online but which ones are legit?
It’s all very confusing.
Or maybe I am just psyching myself out? Maybe what I have been doing all along is the correct way and I am just too scared to realize it.
Wow I am pretty deep today….I should wear my glasses and quote Nietzsche all day.
Anyway what do you think blog friends? Is there a workshop that helped you? Or do you think they are a waste of time and money?
Have a Magical Monday!
