Talking Back to Your Brain: The Art of Asking Questions

Did you ever wonder why one day your writing is like pulling teeth (if you can write at all) while on another day it flows easily? Does it sometimes seem like your brain is actually fighting you?  Well, maybe it is. Recent insights into the structure of the human brain and how the parts work together (or don’t) provide powerful techniques to free your creativity and jump-start your writing. This workshop will help you learn how to use these techniques, not only in your writing but in the rest of your life as well. 

Whether or not you have a current work in progress, bestselling author Susan Squires will show you how to solve problems (including writer’s block), make your characters and plots deeper and more resonant, and create a book that keeps your reader turning pages.
