“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It’s that easy, and that hard.”
― Neil Gaiman
Ask any writer, published or not, what the greatest challenge is to writing and the number one answer will likely be starting to write. The second answer is usually to keep writing. We hope to help aspiring authors with our new class “Start Writing, Keep Writing” taught by The New York Times bestselling author Karleen Koen.
Using rapid fire exercises and writing prompts, students will actually practice starting and begin to let go of the perfectionism holding them back.
“All good writing, the writing you see out there in the world, has been refined and edited, but it had to begin somewhere,” said Ms. Koen. “It began in writing to express, to feel, to see what’s there, to answer a question, to attempt, to try. It began raw. This is an experience of writing in the raw, no shame attached. No judgment. It’s a strike at the inner critic.”
Join us in “Start Writing, Keep Writing” beginning February 10.
