————————————————————————————————————————————–Norwich author to use her own experience to help others with writer’s block
The course is aimed at those who have an idea for a story or novel but don’t know how to get started, or for those who have already made a start but are now feeling stuck.
Mrs Johnson said: “It took me two years to write the book on top of having a job at a college in Nottingham. I did a great deal of research for it, including going to the Imperial War Museum in London to read original diaries and letters.
“I ended up writing two versions of the story and thoroughly confused myself.
“But with increased experience, I could see exactly what I needed to change to make it work.
“I did not decide to try and publish it until 16 years later – but happily it was quickly accepted by Omnific Publishing.
“I know all about the fears and doubts that can plague aspiring writers and always try to include an element of writing confidence building in the creative writing courses.”
The course will help students to work on their plot and story outline, decide on their story theme, heighten conflict to add interest, decide on the best ending for their story and more.
Mrs Johnson also writes contemporary women’s fiction and fiction for people who are learning to speak English.
Fiction Writing – Moving Forward, will run for ten weeks from 7pm to 9pm, from September 17 at Oak Grove Chapel, Catton Grove Road, Norwich.
