Focus on Story Issues
Whether you are developing big story elements or identifying the small details that make the story special, there's nothing like the frustration of knowing something isn't working. We'll talk about how to triage a scene, the best way to brainstorm solutions, and how to hack your neural pathways. This session includes time to dissect story issues the participants are facing.
Jen Graybeal (she/her) offers creative coaching for your books, business, and mindset through encouraging feedback, collaborative problem solving, and gently-applied tough love. She has a degree in English, an ever-expanding TBR, and a furball assistant that is usually on her lap.

Better Faster Academy Workshop: Strengths for Writers Day
Have you ever taken a workshop (marketing, plotting, productivity) and no matter how hard you tried, you couldn’t make the outcomes happen that the workshop promised? Ever wondered why that happens? If you join us for this masterclass in success alignment, you’ll not only learn *why* this happens, but how to maximize your capacity for better success in the future. Anyone can tell you what worked for them, and they can say “it might not work for you,” but they can’t tell you why. I can tell you why. Join me for a day of success alignment, specifically designed for writers, that will unlock many of the answers to “why is this not working” and “how could I do this better” that you’ve been seeking. Workshop taught by Becca Syme (MATL), Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, who has coached nearly 6000 individual authors to success alignment and better career satisfaction.
