Get Ready for National Novel Writing Month!  T. Greenwood’s back again with this terrific 2 session workshop!

Note: Class is held at a new venue– Words Alive Annex, see the Google Map below for directions.

This class sells out quickly so sign up today!

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 every Sunday, 10 am- 5 pm.)
