Get the dog washed and the dishes done, 'cause it's time to clear the calendars for National Novel Writing Month!
Whether you're thinking about writing a novel or mired in the middle of your work in progress, this is the class for you. The intensive course of study reviews Christopher Vogler's The Hero's Journey's three-act structure and Debra Dixon's Goal, Motivation, and Conflict: The Building Blocks of Good Fiction, and breaks these concepts down into a manageable, 30-day writing regimen, with particular emphasis on those all-important first five pages and middle-of-the-story conflict.
The Book in a Month Tool Kit includes:
1. PowerPoint Videos of Class Instruction
2. Personal Goal Tracker Calendar
3. Character Worksheets
4. Character Goal, Motivation & Conflict Sheets
5. Story Board Worksheets
a. Act One
b. Act Two
c. Act Three
6. Time Tracker Worksheets
