From Ideas to Outline

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you will have seen me take all sorts of ideas through their paces. If you’re curious as to how I get rolling, I’m teaching a workshop on Forward Motion through August and into September that takes you through my process one step at a time. This is outlining for organic thinkers, though the methodology works on both inspired and crafted works (as not all my ideas come dressed for the party).

Anyway, if you are interested, here’s the specifics for the six-week workshop.

From Ideas to Outline will introduce a series of techniques to convert an idea into a workable, non-constricting outline. Come prepared to work hard as you will be asked to perform each technique yourself so that you can judge whether it works for you or not.
Begins Monday, August Third. Facilitator: Margaret McGaffey Fisk

Note that theses workshops are free but do require that you become a Forward Motion member (which is also free). Once you are logged in, click the below link to go straight to the right section (note the Learning Center 2009 link is available from the header on any forum page):

Hope to see some of you there.

  1. Oooh, exciting; I’ve signed up! Thank you for offering this!

  2. I’ve bookmarked the forum page in my browser. Thank you for posting this here. I don’t go to the FM site often because I can easily lose days on end just reading and lurking through all the forums. =)
