2017 is in the bin, and your 2018 resolution is to finish what you start. New year? New novel! Don’t like planning? This class is for you. Love planning? This class is for you.

We’ll talk about how to follow your curiosity, and stay engaged with the writing moment, within a supportive structure. You’ll walk out with a deadline, a timeline to meet it, and a way in to the heart of your novel.

You will learn

  • About narrative design
  • techniques for time management for writers
  • planning for pantsers and pantsing for planners
  • about writing through difficulty
  • how to hold a whole novel in your head.
