The Nuts & Bolts of Drafting a Novel
Writing a first novel is an act of both endurance and faith. In this workshop, we’ll discuss what it takes to actually sit down and write a novel, from inspiration to time management, organization, persistence, and keeping hope alive. Perfect for writers planning to complete NaNoWriMo, those already working on novels, or anyone who just hopes to reach “The End” of the manuscript one day soon.
