How to Build a Sweet Spot Map Workshop - Part One

How to Write Fiction: How to Unleash Your Muse and Get Creative, Unexpected and Motivating Ideas

Our listeners have been asking for this episode since we first started referencing the Sweet Spot Maps.  We are now taking on a four-parter on the topic with personal examples of how we use it in our work.  

What is a Sweet Spot Map?  What is it used for?  How do I build one and why do I want to?

In this episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) discuss the technique and how Holly has altered the basic mind map to work on a deeper, more personal, more fiction-focused level.  This helps to develop ideas and cultivate a closer connection to your muse while also creating links you might not have found otherwise.  Learn over the next four weeks how powerful and multi-faceted this tool really is.
