What Is This Course About?
What Is Write 2 Right About?
You pick up a pen or open your computer and begin to write. Is it to be a novel? A memoir? A poem? A screenplay?
Questions form … What do I want to say? Will anyone want to read this? Am I wasting my time?
With those few initial questions, cascades of chemicals are released deep inside the sulci of your brain: sodium and potassium rush across cell walls. Nerve cells (neurones) release specialized neurotransmitters: dopamine, serotonin, adrenaline, noradrenaline. A nerve cell fires up in your pre-frontal cortex and synapses with another and another and another until your entire brain is active and charged and energized.
What happens next?

Her vision is to walk with you towards your long-cherished dream of writing. Imagine, after only nine weeks you will hold in your hands the outline of your beautiful novel. Or maybe, you will pen an exquisite poem or develop an outstanding screenplay.
Laura is a physician and a writer.
“Writing is a knife and fork partnership. The fork identifies an emotion: spears it, lands it on the writer’s plate. The knife is analytical and technical wants to sort out the emotion, chop it up, arrange it.”
~ (adapted from) Ruth Padel

“One great part of every human existence is passed in a state which cannot be rendered sensible by the use of wideawake language, cutanddry grammar and goahead plot.”
~ James Joyce
