For Your Weekend Enjoyment

April 20, 2013

Welcome to Bridge to Story

Here’s a link to my website.

(52 free writing lessons for novices writing fiction or memoir)

Take work from your mind to the page now. Coaching sharpens storytelling craft & style. See your story shine. All genres, memoir.

Novice writers spend a lot of time reading how-to books and attending workshops and classes. A lot of these offer exercises, story starters and prompts to try out your writing skills…like….

  • Write ten opening lines
  • Keep a list of unusual names for future characters
  • Write a paragraph beginning with the phrase _____

But if you exercise then set aside your resulting work in notebooks and journal you will never discover where those exercises might take you. In this lesson we’ll take the steps of looking at your own work and expanding your exercises by questioning them. The goal is reviewing with an eye for turning exercises into scenes, short stories or novels; by looking at your work and taking the next step: reworking exercises to actually writing more

Check it out now, and then contact me for one-on-one coaching.
