I’ve just completed lurking through a Bob Mayer workshop and have been provoked into looking much deeper into my goals and aspirations as a writer. I am thankful for my military background as the language he uses and his examples were very easy for me to adapt to as we were applying this thinking to our own work. Having only just completed working my way through all his posts I’m as yet uncertain how I will convert his theories so they can apply to the career I hope to have but I do know I will be giving some very serious thought to his suggestions. I do now have set in concrete tactical and strategic goals leading to my determination to continue writing and honing my skills at story telling.
The best any workshop can do is to force us to think and rethink how we work and how we can improve ourselves. Bob Mayer’s Warrior Writers presentation certain did that for me.
