Are you a plotter? A panster? A little of both? Have no idea yet? No matter what your writing style, the bare bones method of prepping for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November can help you do just enough prep work for your novel-writing adventure that you enter the challenge with a strong plan, but not so much pre-planning that it stifles your creativity or kills your enthusiasm for the project.

The bare bones method focuses on giving you a strong foundation on which to build your story, and also gives you a direction to head in once November 1 comes long. No more fearing that blank page. Now you’ll have a plan of attack!

This three-week workshop covers the following lesson topics:

Overview of the NaNoWriMo Challenge
Growing Your Story Idea
Getting to Know Your Main Character
Starting in the Right Place
Story High Points and Low Points
Scene Brainstorming from Your Character’s Point of View

Each lesson includes one or more exercises to reinforce the concepts discussed in the lesson, and individual feedback from the instructor is always provided.
