A writing-interest community conducted a Writing Curiosity Survey in July 2019. There were three main reasons why non-writers and newbie writers, a huge majority of respondents, weren't able to start or sustain their writing endeavours (not in any particular order):
Lack of time
Distractions and not prioritizing writing...
...in spite of having many legitimate reasons to writing, like (again, not in any particular order):
Passion to write a book
The faith they can write well
Benefits in career
Hence, this workshop is a combined effort by The Folded Paper and Cross Skills to introduce more writing skills while indulging in the pleasures of self-expression - all in an open, positive, encouraging, and inquisitive setup. This three-hour writing initiation workshop will have tried-and-tested activities and theories from The Folded Papers bi-weekly meetings.
Goals of the workshop:
Break myths and perceive writing in a positive light through fun, insightful, and informative activities.
Rediscover and establish writings benefits and make self-expression through writing a way of life.
Introduce the basics of storytelling to make us better storytellers in life and at work.
Leverage the power of small habit changes that let our creative selves flourish, like - the power of observation, creating time, and more.
You should register if you identify yourself with any of these:
You wish to write, but dont have the guidance and the motivation
You cant take out time from your hectic schedule
You have some big plans to write a book, but dont know where to start
Would like to lay your hands on writing as a new hobby
Your work demands writing, but it makes you flinch with fear
Writing requires a mind that thinks, a heart that lets the mind think, and a hand that gets the thoughts to the physical form of words. We need no prior experience, just an open and inquisitive mind.
