THE HERO

What does it mean to be a hero?
Why have one in your story?
Why seek one in yourself?
Where’s the line between writing fact and writing fiction? 

THE NATURAL STORYTELLER

As human beings we are natural storytellers. If we can re-connect with that part of ourselves, then our stories will emerge fully formed and largely without effort. 

WHY DO WE TELL STORIES

Storytelling is not a luxury for human beings, it is fundamental to our surviving and thriving. Understand that and reclaim your pride as a writer. 

WILD 1: HOLISTIC & INSTINCTUAL

What would it mean to function from a place of wild as a human animal and as a writer? How would that enable the creative process?

WILD 2: THREAT & OPPORTUNITY

When we respond appropriately to the threats and opportunities that the writing environment sends us, we write vividly, powerfully and with flow. To understand how to do this, it helps to understand the biological functioning of animals in natural environments.

CAGED 1: DISCONNECTION

When we are disconnected from an embodied, holistic experience of life, we are unable to respond from an instinctual place. Our writing then reflects our experience – lacklustre and disconnected. Understand how this affects you personally and take a step on the road to recovering your wild writer.

CAGED 2 : HELPLESSNESS

When we freeze, rather than meeting opportunity and threat from a place of clear action, we become frightened and helpless. Explore how this affects your life and writing process to reclaim your wild writer.
