My Writers’ Meditations

This is the Long Version. A good place to start if you’re feeling stuck. It’s about 17 min.

This is the Short Version – 6.5 min. If you’ve already done the long one, you can just touch on the ideas and they spring back to life more quickly.

In the workshop, I mentioned several resources that people might like a closer look at. Here they are gathered together with links for you to follow.

Here’s what it’s about:

Michele’s Workshop – Skeleton Keys

Sun, April 2nd, 2017 at 3pm – Room: Grand Villa 2
Sneaky craft tools that trick your brain into getting your story finished
It’s inevitable that life will blindside your creative process, no matter how perfect it is. This workshop focuses on creating a custom set of master keys to fit any locked door you encounter. Find simple tasks that feel so easy, they might even be fun!

Michele’s Bio

Michele Fogal received a BFA in Creative Writing and then set aside dreams of being a writer for more practical endeavours. Writing, however, had other plans. After battling doubt and writer’s block for years, Fogal is now finding ways to include creativity as a part of her long term life approach, while maintaining her family relationships, her household, her business and her sanity! She is the author of 3 novels, published by 2 presses.

Hope to see you there,

    Was a fantastic talk at RWA-GVC, too! Missed the Creative Ink version, but looking forward to having the workbook. (And I’m loving your book, King of Snowflakes! You’re a gifted writer!)
