I made a decision today.
We are Ninja Writers, you and me. That’s right, I decided. Ninja. Writers.
We’re Ninja Writers and we’re going to set the world on fire with our stories. I can feel it in my bones.
One of the first assignments in The Plotting Workshop is one of my personal favorites to do when I’m planning my own books. It involves inspiration and I invite everyone to send the results to me.
Just the inspiration for your stories fills my writer heart with so much joy and excitement.
You have amazing stories to tell, and that feeds my own mojo as I work on my own stories. And yeah–it’s heady, intense, amazing stuff we’re doing.
I really, really want you to be a Ninja Writer with me, because I want it for you, but also for some entirely selfish reasons. Here they are:
- First and foremost, I want your stories. I’m grabby-hands eager for your stories. I want them. And that means you have to write them. I want to teach you to write them well, and then support you while you get them done so that I can have them.
- Do you know how powerful even a handful of dedicated, focused people can be? Imagine what Ninja Writers could do, if we put our minds to it. We could break the publishing industry. We could change everything. I want to be part of that.
- I never want to let the publishing industry dictate my creativity again. I feel so strongly that we can have far more control over how our stories are told than writers have ever had before. We can have a deeper connection with our readers. We can decide which stories need to be told, without gatekeepers who are worried about the bottom line. Again: I want to be part of that. We don’t have to put our careers completely in the hands of a system that isn’t keeping up with a swiftly changing world.
Why Ninjas? Well, because I want to be something as awesome as a Ninja Writer. And I don’t want to be the only Ninja Writer, so I’m hoping you’ll come be one with me.
Ninjas are stealthy. They sneak attack. And they know it takes a lot of work on the front end to be able to be an effective ninja. They train. They hone their skills. And when they strike, no one sees it coming.
The world needs your story. Are you ready to do this? It all starts with The Plotting Workshop.
