Novel in a Day Workshop

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:)

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
