Write Now!
A Speedy Journaling Workshop

Become a journaling virtuoso in just ten minutes a day, thanks to the proven tips and techniques from professional writer, librarian, and devoted word nerd, Amy Sorensen.

With just a bit of coaching, anyone (including you!) can learn to write strong scrapbook journaling—journaling that makes you feel, think, or wonder; makes you giggle and nod your head in agreement; or gives you a little chill because it's that good.

You'll learn methods to face down the empty journaling space, to express emotion and tell a story, and to get right to the guts of your ideas. You'll find yourself inspired to journal instead of dreading it, because you'll know how to write it quickly.

Not just quickly, though. You'll also learn how to write well, to write the kind of journaling that draws your visual attention and then completely catches your emotional focus. The kind of journaling other people will read and then think to themselves, I wish I could write like that.

Write Now! will show you that you can.

Are you ready to discover a new aspect of your journaling self? The tools and techniques you'll learn in this 4-week course will make you a pro at the art of the quick write. You'll end up with the ability to write something meaningful on all of your layouts, no matter how little time for journaling you have.

Amy believes that words are what turn our collections of photos and embellishments into scrapbook layouts. Her writing philosophy will change your approach and your feelings about writing journaling. She's built a life that revolves around words by doing everything from writing articles for Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbooks Etc. and Ella Publishing to teaching high school English; from writing essays to obsessing (just a little) over books. She developed the writing approaches in Write Now! based on her belief that everyone can write great journaling and on her skill at doing it quickly. You can find her monthly journaling tips every first Saturday at Write. Click. Scrapbook. and her random writings on her blog, The English Geek.
