Event: Getting the most out of NaNoWriMo

For Southern Oregon Writers interested in pushing through the month of November.

Zero to First Draft: Make the Most of NaNoWriMo   NEW!

This course will guide students through National Novel Writing Month
so they end the month with a coherent 50,000-word first draft of their
novel. The class will prepare for the month by covering the basics of
story structure, character arcs, and outlining. With this foundation,
students will begin writing their novels outside of class. Lectures and
discussion will provide solutions to common sticking points such as lack of motivation, second act slump, and writing for word count rather than the story. Each class will also address students’ particular story ques-
tions. The final class will suggest next steps for students’ new manu-
scripts. This is an excellent class for students who are new to novel
writing or experienced writers who are looking for a challenge. Students are expected to try to write 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. Students will sign up for a free account on NaNoWriMo.org
so they can track their word counts and take advantage of the online
