I bet there are a few dozen of you out there with a story you want to tell. You've been saving it in your heard drive lo these many months, nay years.
Now is the time to let it live.
I am sounding very dramatic, but there are many folks out there with a few good pages of a novel and no idea what to do with it.
The online novel class I'm teaching to UCLA Extension starts September 29, and I'd love to have you look at it, think about it, sign up.
Here's the blurb and the URL:
This workshop helps you develop your long-form fiction project from the idea stage to the writing/planning stage. With an emphasis on finding your book through exploring voice, viewpoint, characterization, and different approaches to structure, course assignments include writing scenes using characters and situations from the projected novel and critique and discussion of your in-progress work. Mini-lectures on the art of the novel, intuitive creative process, and conventional versus non-conventional approaches to novel structure also are covered. The goal is to complete 50 well-crafted pages of a novel.
Hope to "see" you there.
