One of the biggest obstacles any writer faces is finishing the first draft of a novel. As Joyce Carol Oates said, “Getting the first draft finished is like pushing a peanut with your nose across a very dirty floor.” Enter National Novel Writing Month, which has generated one of the most effective approaches to writing a first draft of a novel and bounding to new imaginative heights. In the first section, Grant Faulkner will discuss ways to banish your inner editor, dive into your work with creative abandon, and write boldly on the page. Come with questions about your writing challenges and be prepared to write with abandon! During the second section, Kathy Kitts will lead creative exercises specifically designed to put these and other techniques into immediate practice.
