I was fortunate to attend an 8 hour workshop yesterday titled Novel In A Day, by a wonderful speaker Vic DiGenti.
It was jam-packed into 28 sections and even included an hour for lunch. He hit on much needed topics such as character development, writing dialogue, and the ‘muddle in the middle’. I can’t even begin to pinpoint which part was the most useful as I needed almost every section for one project or another.
Actually, I think the most useful part was brainstorming with my friend, and fellow writer, Kristin Paul. She gave me another way to think about Kobi’s story as well as Murder of Crows and even gave feedback to the only adult novel in the very early planning/idea phase.
All in all, it was a great way to spend a Saturday and I took away much information. And for those of you wondering – yes, I made my reading goal this week:)
