Do you write by the seat of your pants?
Do you want to write faster?
This workshop teaches a minimalist approach to story development to accommodate “pantsers” (those who write by the seat of their pants) while still establishing the big picture for the plot and character arc. By the end of this class, students will have enough direction to make “Fast Drafting” techniques work for them.
This workshop consists of two sessions run on the online classroom (recorded) with plenty of time for questions. Due to the depth of information, this workshop is best for non-beginner writers. (If you'd like to take this class despite your newbie status, Beat Sheet Basics: Know Your Story's Structure can get you up to speed.)
Note: This class includes two sessions: Tuesday, May 13 and Thursday, May 15, 9-10:30 PM (New York/Eastern time) each of those days. The class will be recorded and made available to registrants, so even if you can't make it at the scheduled time, you can sign up and listen later at your convenience.
