Welcome to SLO NightWriters


General Meeting Program for November 12th 2019

This evening's Speaker will be Anne Janzer

Getting Your Brain in Gear for Writing


Most of us want to do more writing but struggle to make the time, come up with fresh ideas, or finish the work we start. We may even be sidelined by the Imposter Syndrome – the nagging thought that sounds like this: “I am not really a writer.”

Writing is definitely an inner game. Your brain is your most important writing tool. 

In this session, Anne will share strategies for thinking about and managing your own writing process in a way that increases your output without sacrificing creativity. We’ll cover ways to accelerate the writing process with creative incubation, writing the first draft more fluidly, and structuring the revision process. And, we’ll talk about ways to handle those common writing problems we all run into.
