So…how's NaNoWriMo going for you?
The first 10k words? No problem. Another 5k? I can pants that.
Now…I'm at 18k words with 14 days left…and 0 clues about where to go from here.
Sound familiar? This is what I call 'The Sticky Middle,' and it is a treacherous swamp that can swallow even the most accomplished, focused writers. It is the moment when writers are most likely to be pulled under by the forces of writer's block, insecurity, and exhaustion.
The Sticky Middle is the root cause of 98% (I'm guessing here, but I'm pretty darn sure I'm right) of all unfinished first drafts. This class will teach you how to get out of The Sticky Middle…not just for NaNoWriMo, but for every book you write from now on!
This class will cover:
- Walking into Quicksand: Half of getting out of The Sticky Middle is knowing how we got in there in the first place…and how to avoid making these early mistakes next time;
- Maslow Stripping: Assessing where characters are when we get stuck…and what we need to take away from them in order to move forward;
- The Treasure Map: Making sure we have our eye on the prize (i.e. the ending), and how to use that to get through The Sticky Middle;
- Stop! Break it Down!: (Couldn't help myself with that…) A blunt, practical way to tackle the amorphous goo that is The Sticky Middle and wrestle it into realistic, achievable, bite-size steps.
A recording of this class is also included with purchase.
