TOPIC   |   NLP and Writing Great Novels

About NLP and how it can help authors devise and complete great novels:
NLP, or neurolinguistic programming, is a tool that helps you write more, better, and faster. Used with respect and compassion, NLP is a gentle way to help you have what you want without having to “work” to be different than who you are.

Starting with the underlying assumption that all behavior has an intended positive intention and that we always do the thing that feels the best, I’ll lead you through a few exercises that help you clarify your writing goals, expand your writer toolkit, and give you a few practical and useful ways to improve your writing, write faster, or handle roadblocks as they come up.

In this hands-on workshop, I’ll share about:

  • the building blocks of our experience, the senses, and explore how that applies to improving your fiction
  • the readers’ experience, and how to tap into that
  • a procrastination-busting tool to help you spend more time writing

If you’re curious about how to expand your toolkit as a professional writer and incorporate some ways that help you learn more easily and integrate more information, so you can complete great novels, then join us!
