Free Writing Seminar from Writers Digest

Not sure what y’all are up to on December 4th at 1pm… I’ll be at work, unfortunately. If you are so lucky as to be free, why not take a great seminar for FREE? Register here for James Scott Bell’s workshop on revising your first draft, editing dialogue and more. I’ve been lucky enough to take a workshop with Bell, and he’s very helpful. If you ever feel like you’re just slogging along, buried in the muck, he can help make novel-writing feel more like a clear process.

Here’s the description:
*How to approach the first read-through
*Shorthand editing marks
*What to do about common problem areas
*How to revise the opening
*Tips for revising dialogue
*Integrating theme during revision
*The final polish

Whip your manuscript into shape with NOVEL REVISION: CRAFT A STORY READERS CAN’T PUT DOWN.

  1. In the past when I’ve taken webnairs by Writer’s Digest, they always sent a copy of the webnair to me a week later so I could review it whenever I like. Maybe you should sign up for the webnair, even though you can’t make it, just in case they plan to do that with this one? That way you can still watch it.
