Denise Jaden Presents a Workshop to RWA-GVC Members and Guests on Writing The First Draft – Fast!
Denise Jaden’s novels have been shortlisted or received awards through the Romance Writers of America, Inspy, and SCBWI. The first draft of her debut novel, Losing Faith (Simon & Schuster), was written in 21 days during NaNoWriMo and she loves talking with writers and students about her fast-drafting process, and the different avenues of publishing. Jaden’s other young adult novels include Never Enough, A Christmas Kerril, and Foreign Exchange (an Editor’s Pick from Evernight Teen). Her non-fiction books for writers include, Writing with a Heavy Heart and Fast Fiction. Find out more on Twitter @denisejaden or at Denisejaden.com.
Denise Jaden wrote the first draft of her first novel, Losing Faith, in 21 days during NaNoWriMo 2007. Her new book for writers, Fast Fiction, gets into the nitty-gritty of how she comes up with an outline, fits her writing into an already busy schedule, and then writes a cohesive first draft quickly. Join Denise for a hands-on workshop, where she’ll lead you on an exploration into the depths of your own story ideas and characters.
Come out for our special Election meeting Saturday and benefit from this added bit of inspiration that writers of all levels and genres will enjoy. This timely workshop will inspire and guide your writing, as many of our members, along with writers around the globe, push through the annual challenge of National Novel Writing Month. Not only is a quorum of membership required for the election, but we need to see more participation in our regular meeting as we choose our new board and move toward the new year.
