Okay, not really in a day (wink, wink), but… Do you have an idea for a novel, or a gazillion ideas, but no idea how to get them down into a workable plot? Have you always had unique, interesting characters in your head screaming to get out? Have you already started a novel but need to conquer the most feared problem of all—writer’s block? Then, join author Annalisa Russo in an all-day workshop where she will help you “chunk out” the ideal, salable length for your novel, help you develop riveting characters and a plot without holes, and set you on a path that will get you through all the detours. You will leave with a compelling, edited beginning and a chapter-by-chapter blueprint for the rest of your novel. Since this will be a working class, bring your writing tools and index cards for plotting.
