Creative Writing Lessons: Finding ideas and getting creative with your writing

Creative Writing Lessons: Finding ideas and getting creative with your writing

This is an extract from my short story course, hosted on Udemy, which you can access via the link below and get for half price 🙂

This lecture takes you through the different methods you can use as a writer to find ideas. It starts by answering the question I get asked the most as a writer; where do I get my ideas from? I do my best to answer that and then talk about places new writers might find inspiration.

The advice talks about how reading can help, how writing inspires us to write more, how keeping a notebook can help. It talks about writing prompts and exercises, and where you can find them, going through all of my recommended places. There’s no one method that works for everyone, so it’s all about finding what works for you. There’s a follow up lecture about that too, coming soon…

Thanks for watching. If you’re interested in learning more about creative writing and short stories, follow this link to a special offer on my current Udemy course. https://www.udemy.com/short-story-workshop-learn-from-a-prizewinning-writer/?couponCode=YouTube_Half
