As C.G. Jung knew,
“Ultimately, everything depends on the quality of the individual…”
I teach not from theory but as a working writer. That is why I know the hardest part is sitting down.

“Each story is unique if it comes from you. You are the most important ingredient. I encourage my clients not only to write what they know, but what they feel strongly about, either real or imagined. George Lucas never traveled in outer space but he lived the story that became Star Wars.”
“We’ve become lopsided living only in our heads. Writing, in order to serve the soul, must integrate outer craft with the inner world of intuition and feeling.” – Catherine Ann Jones, New York Times interview
Learn the Seven Steps to Story Structure
Writing comes from within and the work begins there. But craft is essential. Craft and discipline result in freedom. Three things matter: structure, structure, and structure! Story structure is the architectural plan which provides a solid foundation for the story you wish to tell. Learning this aspect of craft is essential in manifesting a commercially successful story .
But craft alone is not enough:
“The purpose of the artist is humble, He is essentially only a channel.”
“The best times are when I seem to disappear altogether and the story writes itself. It passes through me but is not really mine. A kind of visitation, if you will.”- Catherine Ann Jones, Pleiades Magazine
