October Webinar: How To Write A First Draft In A Month

October 23rd I’ll be teaching another great webinar with Writer’s Digest.

 

Yes, you can write a draft of your book in a month! Don’t let limited time, busy lives, or other obstacles get in your way of writing the book that is in you. A manuscript in 30 days requires thoughtful preparation, strategic planning, a strong sense of discipline and loads of enthusiasm—and this live webinar will give you the concrete tools to achieve your goal. If the only thing that’s holding you back from getting words on the page is no plan, this webinar has all the answers.

Literary agent Carly Watters has been coaching authors through first drafts for a decade and she’ll present a comprehensive strategy to “winning” National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo): a 50,000+ word draft in 30 days. This webinar is all about volume and getting 1,667+ words written per day. Whether you’ll be joining a “5am Writers’ Club,” writing during your lunch breaks at work, or after your kids have gone to sleep—it’s possible for everyone. The webinar will focus on character sketches, detailed storyboarding, realistic schedules, and tips to keep up your momentum through the full month of daily writing.

There will be roadblocks, but you’ll be better positioned to succeed with the more preparation you can do in advance.

 

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How to create an overview for your month of writing
  • How to create an engaging premise, well-paced plot, and comprehensive character sketches in advance of writing
  • How to stick to a daily word count
  • Which chapters to flag for future revision and when to forge on to the next chapter
  • Tips for setting, and maintaining, a realistic schedule
  • Ways to overcome complicated life stuff, writers’ block and sluggish writing days

  • Writers thinking about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)
  • Writers scheduled to participate in NaNoWriMo this November
  • Writers who are writing their first manuscript ever
  • Writers who have written a book, but are looking for a faster-paced schedule this time around
