If so, then this two-hour novel writing booster session is for you. Whether you’re an experienced fiction writer or a debut novelist it’s all too easy to veer off course, run aground or just find yourself blocked. In this session the focus will be on sharing the challenges that you are encountering in writing your novel, identifying and exploring techniques to overcome those challenges, and reclaiming your enthusiasm as a writer for the project. The emphasis will be on discussion and exercises so please bring a pen and paper.
