“WEEK 15: “O” – OPENINGS AND ORIGINALITY “
“BE A REAL WRITER! Is this scenario familiar?
You want to write, but you feel stuck. You struggle to get the “opening line” to emerge from the recesses of your brain. You find yourself increasingly frustrated as the blank white screen glares back at you. The cursor blinks, as if to say, “Get on with it!”
You repeatedly write, you repeatedly delete, only to find yourself still at square one, getting nowhere. As time slips away, self-doubt creeps in, sucking away your last shred of confidence.
Don’t worry… this means you are having a writing experience like all real writers. Don’t listen to the nagging voice that says, “You can’t do this!” You can!
Think real life. Be authentically you!
This week, we will help you practice, persuade and personify your openings. Your voice is original, and this week will inspire you to use it.”
