Flash Writing with Simplicity
Friday, October 7, 2016, 9:00 a.m. – 11 a.m.
It’s getting close to November. Can you say NaNoWriMo? It’s that time of year when many writers will focus on writing their first manuscript draft in two to four weeks or finishing a book in thirty days.
As part of the CWC’s first-Friday networking and tip meeting, Oct. 7, 2016, Michael Brandt will address “Flash Writing with Simplicity” or a guide to NaNoWriMo. National Novel Writing Month — or as writers say, “NaNoWriMo” — is an annual, Internet-based creative writing project that takes place during the month of November.
The national event challenges participants to write 50,000 words, the minimum number of words for a novel, from November 1 until the deadline at 11:59 p.m. November 30. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to get people writing and keep them motivated throughout the process to get a novel on paper, but some writers use the national enthusiasm aside to create a script or non-fiction book.
Mike’s session will provide different avenues to accomplish the task of speed writing directed at finishing that long overdue script, short story, or novel. It will be an interactive session, and other views and experience will be most welcome.
Writers Network is held the first Friday of every month at the International House of Pancakes (IHOP), 2216 Sunrise Blvd., Rancho Cordova (just north of Highway 50) starting at 9 AM. Meetings are free. Attendees pay for their own breakfast. Get map.
