We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that you’re a creative person. You’re someone whose mind is always working. And since you’re a writer, your daydreams probably turn to story ideas, plot points, character motivation. In other words, you probably don’t suffer from a lack of ideas.
But as you stare out at that vast idea garden, how do you know which ones to cultivate and which ones to yank out at the root? How do you know what’s good?
Gabriela Pereira’s mission is to help you channel all that creativity and energy, teasing out the good ideas and putting meat on the bones of the viable characters. And that’s why she thinks it’s important to know your own personal storytelling superpower. Because you’re very, very good with at least one aspect of storytelling (really, we’re guessing probably more than one), but until you know your strengths, you can’t make your writing as powerful as possible.
To start you on your hero’s quest, take five minutes out of your day to try her Storytelling Superpower quiz.
And if you’d like to experience the DIY MFA method in person, you’re in luck: Gabriela is offering an Insiders version of the program at the Writer’s Digest Annual Conference in New York this summer. It’s personalized support before, during and after the event, so you can make the most of your investment in attending a writing conference.
