YOU HAVE A PROCESS.

YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A WRITING PROCESS.

It might not be working for you, or you might not know what it is, or you might not yet have the tools to unlock its potential.

That’s where this workshop with Heather Demetrios comes in.


THE YOU HAVE A PROCESS SYSTEM

Over years of working with writers to uncover their process and tap into its potential, Heather has developed a system that helps writers dive deep into this exploratory work quickly and efficiently.

Most writers are frustrated because they’ve been trying to use other people’s processes. They’ve read Plot Whisperer, Save the Cat, Story Genius. They do what their favorite writer does, or try out a new kind of outlining everyone’s talking about. They label themselves a “pantser” or a “plotter,” stuffing themselves into a one-size-fits-all box that is very uncomfortable. Then they wonder why they struggle with flow, focus, and output.

The goal of this workshop is to help you discover that you already have a process. Sometimes it shows up in the writer’s seat without you realizing it. Other times, it’s a process that works in other parts of your life that you can successfully transfer into your writing sessions.

Through Heather’s dynamic “dialogue” process that she’s used to help dozens of writers get clarity on their process, you’ll walk away with a firm understanding of your process and with lots of tools for getting unstuck, including “courting flow,” and an approach to a writing practice and process that works for you. Attendees will learn their individual “process archetype” and from there will be given loads of tools to go deeper. Heather will lead the group with her process dialogue, which helps you gain incredible insight into what you’re already doing when you seit down to write. How you enter story, what flow feels like, what helps when you get stuck. Through worksheets, curated writing exercises, mindfulness tools for lifestyle change and growth mindset, and a holistic look at your writing hygiene and creativity lifestyle, we’ll get your process running smoothly.

More flow.

More focus.

More joy in the writer’s seat.

Sounds good, right?

This dynamic workshop is for writers at any level and will leave you with loads of tools to continue workinging with long after the course is over.
