Zelda Lockhart, Removing the Obstacles and Internal Saboteurs from Your Creative Process
Removing the Obstacles and Internal Saboteurs from Your Creative Process
A Workshop and Reading from The Soul of the Full-Length Manuscript: Turning Life Wounds Into the Gift of Literary Fiction, Memoir & Poetry.
Thursday, May 27, 2021 7-9pm EST
As writers we have to go into some deep emotional caves to get the gems of moving literature. If you are going into deep caves, you should wear a headlamp and a utility belt. You should bring matches, a torch, a raincoat, and food pellets that can sustain you for days and days if necessary—you get the picture. You get equipped for the mission at hand. In this workshop and reading, we will create some lasting tools for going in deep for the good stuff of our literature. We will even give our fear saboteurs and daily obstacles a job so that they help rather than hinder our creative process.
