3-in-1! Writing seminar / Astrology seminar / Creativity workshop
- ·Learn the techniques by constructing an original story from one horoscope!
Horoscopes are amazingly helpful for:
- finding ideas; building characters and backstories; determining structure and plot
- assessing the length of time likely needed to complete a piece for submission
- finding flaws in structure, plot or characters
- spotting personal writing weaknesses needing to be solved
- maximizing positive reaction and receptivity to the project
- determining when to submit
(Recommended: Jon Franklin's "Writing for Story." His outlining technique is the best in the business and will be used throughout the webinar.)
For over 55 years (and 55,000 clients!), Robert Glasscock has been a Los Angeles-based astrologer consulting with clients from over 122 countries. For many years he authored over 250,000 words annually in “American Astrology Magazine’s” monthly and Annual Yearbook issues for Publisher Joanne Clancy. His writings for newspaper columns, magazine articles and anthologies have been cited by Liz Greene, among others.
Having begun to build his own clientele, Robert was invited to study with Linda Goodman in the ‘60s. Since she no longer saw clients (intently writing her second book), she referred her clients to Robert. He became an early member of Joan McEvers’ and Marion March’s Aquarius Workshops, lecturing there as well as national conferences and conventions. He’s been invited to address a variety of forums from the Bank of Beverly Hills’ after-work seminars to the UCLA Medical Wives Association to political, professional, media, civic and religious organizations.
"It amazes me to look back and realize, conservatively, that in 55 years I have worked with over 55,000 clients in person, by telephone, online and through correspondence. Often two, three, four or more a day.
“My favorite thing? Teaching. It’s such a joy to see many of my students go on to become terrific professional astrologers. Not because I’m so great. They were already good astrologers when they found me.
“But if I showed them some things they might not have learned elsewhere . . . or an approach to and philosophy of astrology that helped them find and define their own . . . then, wonderful. If I gave them something that made them better - I can say the same to them.
“Because it’s not only true that, ‘When the student is ready, the teacher will appear’ . . . it’s also true that, 'The teacher learns more than the student.'”
