One of the biggest obstacles any writer faces is writing the first draft of a novel. As Nora Ephron said, “I think the hardest part about writing is writing.” If something has been holding you back from writing your novel—whether it be lack of time, lack of motivation, or just plain fear—we will help you take that next step to plan the journey.

This meeting will be led by Curtis C. Chen and Kate Ristau.

Warning: You will leave this session with a novel plan in hand, so be prepared to write.
