Plot Your Novel for NaNoWriMo with Daryll Lynne Evans

October 4 • 6:30 am - 8:30 pm

$10.00

Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, this fast-paced plotting mashup gives you more than a mere outline. Using Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, 3-act structure, and a screen-writing card trick, you will learn how structure works as the framework of your story, and you’ll get tools to plan out your novel ahead of time or guide your story discovery as you go.

What is NaNoWriMo?

That’s short for National Novel Writing Month. For the month of November, participants from around the world (affectionately known as Wrimos) gather online and endeavor to write their own 50,000-word novels. It’s a month of enthusiasm, determination, and ferociously fast writing. If you enjoy a challenge, or just need a deadline, the NaNo challenge is for you! Here’s a little more about how it all works.  [https://nanowrimo.org/how-it-works]
