Class Description

 
Saturday
October 25
10:00am-12:00pm 

NaNo Get Up & Go 
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
 
Is this the year you're finally determined to try National Novel Writing Month? Or maybe you've tried it before but ended up with pages and pages of words…but no real story? Either way, this two hour workshop can help you move through NaNo with a clear road map for your novel. The workshop will focus on questions about character motivation, conflict, and personal stakes that will help you keep a plot moving forward and keep your story focused. Like a literary GPS system, this workshop will help you get your bearings before beginning your draft and will prevent you from taking (quite so many) detours along the way. (Hey, the writing process ALWAYS involves SOME creative U-turns!)
Class will be held at the conference room of Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, 45419
Price: $35 each or all 3 NaNo classes for $95

NaNo Pit Stop-Halfway There! 
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
 
Part of the fun of National Novel Writing Month is knowing you're in a huge community of writers and kindred spirits all striving toward the same goal. Let's say you're doing NaNo and find yourself stalled. Or maybe you’re rolling right along but you want to keep it that way. This two hour workshop will give you prompts to increase the conflict, up the stakes, and discover new dimensions of your characters in your work in progress, and “fill the well” of inspiration if you’re starting to feel weary. There will be some writing time included so you don’t need to worry about taking too much time out of your NaNo schedule--your in-class writing will go toward your word count! Think of this as a nice, refreshing water station in the middle of your marathon!
Class will be held at the conference room of Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, 45419
