THE FOUNDATIONS: INTRODUCTION
Eric-Emmanuel describes what he will cover in this class.
THE FOUNDATIONS: THE FIRE / THE FUEL
“Why do you want to write?” There are as many answers to this question as there are individuals. What matters is the fire, and any fuel that is added to the fire to keep it burning is important.
Why it's important: With this course, Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt hopes to help you succeed in writing your book. In this chapter, he will give you the keys to finding your fire, and the fuel you need to complete your project.
THE FOUNDATIONS: THE JOURNEY / GROWING WITH YOUR WRITING
"Writing will take you on a surprising journey; a writer is the child of his writing, not its father.”
Writing adds unexpected facets to your life, and this lesson will help you make the most of them.
