Plotting Madness Boot Camp - Harmony Ridge Inn -

Sunday February 4 – Thursday February 8, 2018.

Come with ideas about the novel you want to write. Leave with a completed outline!

As part of a small group of writers, you will be spending three days, six hours a day, plotting your novel and helping other writers plot theirs. Mornings will be large group brainstorming and afternoon sessions will be plotting activities and small groups with individual help.

There won’t be any formal instruction, but I’ll be guiding this process to show you how this can be easily done! Getting feedback on your concept, characters, plot, scene ideas, and structure is THE best way to plot out a novel!
