Get ready for National Novel Writing Month
"During the month of November every year, more than 100,000 people set out to write a 50,000 word (or more) novel in one month . . . However, the idea of leaping into a project may be daunting, and so this preparatory workshop will help you come up with a plan of action. We’ll go over the major facets of a novel (strong characters, structure, point of view, etc…) as well as work on a personal strategy for actually getting it done," says novelist Tammy Greenwood.
Greenwood leads a 2-session workshop to prepare writers for National Novel Writing Month on two Saturdays, October 20 and 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost of the workshop is $120-144. Registration can be completed online, and the workshops will be held at Words Alive (5111 Santa Fe St #219).
