When everything shut down back in March, one of of my first thoughts was: Now I have time to write!

But somehow, things didn’t work out the way I’d hoped. I spent the first month of the “safer at home” period basically on staycation, reading, watching TV and researching my family history. The writing has been only sporadic, and I know I’m not the only author who has been affected this way.

That’s why I’m so looking forward to this month’s OCC/RWA Online Class.

Here’s Allie’s video invitation to the class:

How to Write When It All Goes Wrong

◦ Writer-specific tactics to get you through the thick of your crisis

Comments from attendees:

“I found Allie’s explanations and insights to be very helpful.”

“Thanks to Allie, I’m realizing I don’t have to “shut down” creativity during a crisis. There are a lot of options to working with creativity, rather than against it, during times of duress.”
