The First Draft - Sit Down and Write

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"Sit Down and Write" is about kick-starting your writing. The concept of "not having anything to write about" or "not being able to start" will be thrown out the window. While it is true that anyone can write and anyone can complete a novel, not everyone accepts that writing is work. It must be approached with respect for individual work ethic and an understanding about how to write even when you do not want to.

Some of what we will look at include:

5. Fun with murder

6. What do you mean "quiet time"?
