Open Writing Class : Day 2

Stephen King describes writing a story as digging up a fossil from the desert. Maybe we don’t create stories, maybe we find them buried deep within our psyche.

Day Two of the Open Writing Course, open to everyone but especially anyone locked down because of covid19 / coronavirus, continues by fanning the flames of inspiration.

We take a deeper dive into system 1 thinking vs. system 2 thinking, and how the two work together.
