Writers’ workshop started out as an experiment to bring out the voice of Orangescape Engineers. 3 workshops down and now it has become a part of our culture. We have a workshop every 6 months, where people sign up for a 2-day workshop followed by a #100DaysChallenge. If you are planning to join OrangeScape in near future this is one of the things that you should never miss.
It is for anyone who wants to write but holds back from writing because of the following reasons
- Fear of writing
- Fear of judgment
- Going blank
- Not sure of what to write
- Unsure of where to start
- Any other shells that prevent them from writing
The workshop happens in a resort; far, far away from the office. This setup ensures that people constantly feel the urge to just write and nothing else.
With great resort, comes great food.
Now, you are surrounded by a bunch of people who passionately write. Bunch of people who are there to help you through difficulties
If this is not going to motivate you, I don’t know what else will
Remember the super active brain I told you about? It is going to keep pumping out ideas throughout the workshop.
Writing makes people shed their guard and expose a version of their true self. Tell me if there could be an easier way to strike a conversation with someone than saying “Hey I read your blog and it’s amazing!”
This is something new. By writing blogs and reading other peoples’ work, your knowledge base will grow and you will find yourself evolving into a better person.
Just like you, all of us had problems when it comes to writing. People who pushed themselves to write had trouble publishing it. Those who published it had a problem staying consistent. Every one of us gets stuck at some point or the other.
Neil Miller had put all his efforts to impart deep insights and quick hacks that will get us through our hurdles and self-doubts.
The workshop starts at 10 AM on a Saturday morning and goes until 5 PM where Neil deconstructs various hurdles and offer quick hacks to overcome them. At the end of the session, people would have come up with 30+ ideas to write. And most of them would have their first blog nearly ready.
The rest of the night through the morning people put their muse to work and do as much writing as possible. Because those who make good use of this time will breeze through the next 100 Days.
Yes, the writer’s workshop is the beginning of a 100Day writing challenge. For the next 100 days, we all get into a conference room in our office. There, we brainstorm, ideate, write, and publish blogs.
I am taking up the 100DaysOfWriting Challenge for the second time now. The first time,It exposed everything I had in me. This time I hope it shapes me into a better person.
