                        Class: 10 Tips for Building Believable Love Stories

                        • Saturday, November 11, 2017

                           to 

                        • Athens-Clarke County Library

                          2025 Baxter Street, Athens, GA

                        • AWA founder and lifelong hopeful romantic Katherine Cerulean returns to one of her most popular classes — now with an added bonus! This class explores how to turn a common romance into something extraordinary. Readers love love stories! But all too often we writers fall into either redoing the cliches we’ve seen a million times (tripping and falling into a love interest’s arms), or we imbue the relationship with pat, uninteresting emotions and flat, flawless characters. And yet in our real lives — and favorite fiction — people are rarely flawless, situations rarely perfect, and it is those exact qualities that draw us in and make us fall in love. Your story deserves no less of a happy ending! We will discover how to make your characters interesting and unique, create realistic obstacles for their happiness, and make audiences root for the couple’s perfect walk into the sunset (cancel that cliche — walk into the Frogurt Shack).

                          NOTE: This class is about improving a love story in any medium and genre. I’m not a genre Romance writer and so don’t know the ins and outs of that particular field; but a relationship you can believe in helps in any genre.

                          This event will take place in Multipurpose Room C.

                          This class is FREE!

                          Bonus: Email me at katherinecerulean@gmail.com by October 28th with a one page description of your characters and/or story and the first five will discussed and your questions answered at the end of the class.

                            Class: How to Reevaluate Your Life

                            • Saturday, December 9, 2017

                               to 

                            • Athens-Clarke County Library

                              2025 Baxter Street, Athens, GA

                            • Inspired by the most popular post on her “Stay Extraordinary” blog, AWA founder Katherine Cerulean unveils a new class about changing your life in profound ways forever. There comes a time when you realize your goals and plans may no longer be in alignment with your life and actions. You may feel lost, discouraged, and even wonder just what would make you happy anymore — THIS IS ACTUALLY A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE IN. When you realize you’re ready for a change, you can begin to look at your life anew, discovering what parts you really love and what ideas and situations you have outgrown. We will explore how to rediscover your passions and purpose, figure out which relationships are helping and hindering your journey, discuss simple ways you can begin to improve your life today, strategies for evaluating your life during the holidays, how to turn obstacles into advantages, and why where you are at this moment — standing here in frustration and uncertainty — is actually the best place in the world you could be in, and the start of an awesome hero’s journey.

                              NOTE: This class focuses on evaluating where you are and what would improve your life. For more concrete planning, rejoin us in one month for “2018: Goal-Setting and Amazing Success”.

                              This event will take place in Multipurpose Room C.

                              This class is FREE!

                                • Athens-Clarke County Library

                                  2025 Baxter Street, Athens, GA

                                • Join us in the new year for an explosion of excitement and list-making (!). Come with your “Big Dream” and learn how to figure out the steps you need to take, and how to break your objective down into monthly, weekly, and daily goals. Discover how to stay on track, create the life of your dreams, turn obstacles into advantages, and knock the new year out of the park!

                                  Learn from someone who has spent her entire adult life setting goals and refining techniques for success. It’s not magic; it only takes a good attitude, a well-thought-out plan, and a willingness to WORK HARD. Ralph Waldo Emerson said ‘Do the thing and you will have the power.’ Katherine Cerulean has written three screenplays, six novels, a self improvement book, dropped three sizes, traveled to Europe alone, started a association, edited two collections, set up public events for her group, and gotten rid of 90% of everything she owns. And she wants to help you do all that and more. Come pick her brain and learn how your past failures have only helped teach you how to be ready for success in 2018!

                                  This event will take place in Multipurpose Room C.

                                  This class is FREE!

                                  BONUS: Sign up at the end of the class to email Katherine once a month for the next six months to ask questions and work through new challenges. A FREE life coach in email form!
