Writing a Novel - The Practical Way. With Alex Davis

Writing workshop
The ideal prep session for those about to embark on NaNoWriMo! But also useful for anyone looking to write a novel in general.

About this Event
This two-hour session will look at the key approaches to writing a novel and getting it completed, starting from the importance of the planning process and working through the importance of routine and positive habit-building in getting a book finished. We’ll also take a look at the ups and downs of getting that story written, and how you can tackle those moments where your energy and enthusiasm may begin to wane. This session would be suitable for writers taking part in NaNoWrimo 2020, anyone looking to write a novel in general or authors who have battled with novel-length fiction before.

An online workshop via Google Meet.
