Ashlyn Chase: Writers Be Crazy, Secrets of the Creative Mind
You always knew you were a little different from so-called normal people right? Did you ever wonder why some of those normal types just didn’t seem to ‘get’ you? Or why a group of writers can sit in a box of rocks, and a good time will be had by all?
It’s because we’re hard-wired a certain way. The bad news is, we’re a little crazy.
The good news is, we’re a little crazy—and only another creative mind would get that.
Someone once told Ashlyn, “You don’t think like other people.” She was a fellow writer and didn’t mean it as an insult. She meant it to help…and it did. Ashlyn hopes this workshop will help others who think differently to understand themselves and their unique gift a little better.
Ashlyn Chase describes herself as an Almond Joy bar. A little nutty, a little flaky, but basically sweet, wanting only to give her readers a satisfying experience. An RN, she holds a degree in behavioral sciences and chose to work in the psych field because the mind is still largely uncharted territory and uncovering its secrets is a fascinating privilege. To keep her creative mind out of trouble she became a multi-published, award-winning author of humorous erotic and paranormal romances, represented by the Seymour Agency.
