If you’re looking for a fiction jumpstart, check out our webinar this Thursday on “Write Your Novel in 90 Days.” The webinar, taught by Sarah Domet, the author of 90 Days to Your Novel, talks about all kinds of good info (more below) and gives each attendee a free critique of that pesky synopsis no one likes to write.
It all goes down at 1 p.m., EST, Thursday March 31, 2011, and lasts 75 minutes. Keep in mind you do not have to attend the live event to access the recording or get the critique. Also keep in mind that attendees will be able to ask the instructor questions, and that no question goes unanswered. Sign up here.
1. The synopsis critique. Let’s face it: synopses are no fun to write. That’s why, after attending the webinar, all registrants are invited to submit a synopsis of their novel or novel-in-progress (750 words or fewer) and in return will receive a personalized critique from presenter Sarah Domet.
2. Instruction on how to finish your work. The hardest part of writing a novel is not the starting of it—the world’s desk drawers are stuffed with the first page or two of abandoned novels. Instead, the hardest part is seeing the project to its completion, weaving a story that maintains the attention of your reader from start to finish, and finding ways to getting over the first interruption to your project.
If you’re serious about writing a novel, let Sarah Domet, a writer and teacher of writing, and author of 90 Days to Your Novel, walk you through the process of novel writing from day 1 to your completed draft. Sign up here.
