Jurgen Wolff’s MAD


Owen Law - Writer

No, this does not mean ‘Jurgen Wolff is mad’! Far from it!! This post is actually about something a little bit more on the positive side for a change (did I ever say I was negative, by the way?!) This one is more about the noble art of writing, as after all the blog is largely about a fictional novel  – albeit based on Climate Change and Peak Oil.

I have mentioned Jurgen’s MAD (meaning Massive Action Day) previously on this blog. Jurgen is a highly experienced writer and writing coach who has written numerous fiction and non-fiction works. Every two months or so, he hosts an online event running from 9 am in the morning till 12 midnight whereby people can join in and motivate themselves (with Jurgen and the other participants’ help) to complete their projects. There is a chatroom where ideas can be shared and on the top of the hour he hosts a brief video slot where he gives some practical advice on how to time manage and increase productivity.

The MAD is not solely just for writers, however many of the participants are from the writing community, given Jurgen’s background etc.

The reason I mention this again is because he ran another one yesterday in which I attended for a short while. It was excellent as ever, and I managed to work through yet another chapter of ‘Dragon Line Part 1’  successfully – even though I was only there for about an hour or so. (I’d spent the day at a coaching course run by a company that’ll remain nameless. Needless to say, it was the hard sell and I wasn’t sucked in. Still, it wasn’t completely worthless and nothing ventured, nothing gained!)

The great news is that Jurgen is running yet more MADs this year and you can save yourself up to £50 by signing up for all of them. Normally, they cost £15 individually but to sign up for a year’s worth is only £100. (It is worth it, because you can also access the chat room at other times apart from the official MADs. Some people have been doing this already, and Jurgen has dropped in from time-to-time.)

If you’re interested in MAD-ing and would like to give it a try, click here. (There should also be some more information on the next MAD coming soon.)

Until the next time,

About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
