FRIDAY 9th JUNE - FRIDAY 16th JUNE
WRITE YOUR ASS OFF
(AND LEAVE YOUR HEART ON THE PAGE)
What's more satisfying than someone reading your work and saying: "damn girl, you can write your ass off"?
Except, it's not that easy, is it?
And every time you sit to write, Stuck-ness follows.
Ideas tangle in your mind and you’re left staring at the blank page.
You struggle to bring LIFE to your words and express the deepest parts of yourself.
The question is, are you ready to do something about it?
Do you want to put your heart on the page?
Go on a journey of self-discovery and truth?
View and experience the world as a writer?
If so, it’s time to pen your words, my friend.
SAY HELLO TO YOUR INNER MUSE
I created the WRITE YOUR ASS OFF mini course for fellow dreamers, lovers and soulful entrepreneurs who want to claim (feel and experience) authentic expression through the written word.
It’s designed to give you support, techniques, encouragement, and a loving kick up the caboose to spark your imagination, wet your creative appetite and explore your personal style.
It’s not about being "technically correct" or writing professionally.
Boo to that.
It’s about being creative.
That means GOING YOUR OWN WAY and learning to tap into your own voice.
Coaxing the words from the unspoken parts of yourself so you can leave your heart on the page.
Learning to dance with the written word, so you can tango whenever you want.
There are no short cuts. But this course will awaken your muse and give you the jumpstart you need.
Hi I'm Amanda, a writer, storyteller + humanist.
The words my first client said to me were:
“You can write your ass off”
Not phase you hear everyday in Singapore, I thought.
But then I heard it again.
“Girl, you can write your ass off. Will you do my webcopy?”
And just like that, I went from blogger to profession writer.
My career literally started by posting things online.
Radical, don’t you think?
You can write something, post it, and attract clients almost immediately.
But here's the thing...
While it is radical, it isn’t the exception.
It’s today’s reality.
It’s what it means to have a personal brand and business in the digital age.
Share your voice and people will follow.
Share it well and you can create a movement.
Tap into your creativity and you can express the truth of who you are
Befriend the written word and your world opens.
Words are POWER
But you know that, right?
The real question is, how do you get to know your own inner muse?
How do you spark a literary fire?
How do you learn to write your ass off?
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
You have everything you need.
You just need to get started.
[But first an inconvenient truth]
You can only learn to write (well) by writing.
By jumping in and writing ugly draft after ugly draft until you find the techniques and flow that works for you.
As someone who writes professionally (with a degree in English Literature + Anthropology) I've racked up some lessons and techniques to walk the fine line between creativity and cohesion.
Because on one hand, you need the freedom to write in a way that's original and right for you.
On the other, there are universal strategies that help you express yourself and communicate clearly. There are techniques that help you think better, feel more acutely and live more in-tuned and write authentically.
Writing is one of the biggest blessings in my life, and if you're ready to embark on the journey, it will be yours too.
