Two week session!

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. It’s called NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month – www.nanowrimo.org), and it is a terrific opportunity to finally write that novel you’ve been planning to write all these years. 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.**

**(Following the workshop during the month of November, join other NaNoWriMo participants at The Ink Spot for Room To Write marathon writing sessions.)
