Thinking of trying your hand at the official NaNoWriMo in November? Challenging yourself by setting your own deadline for finishing that novel lurking in your drawer? Crunched for time and ready to make the most of your precious writing minutes?

 Then this course is for you. In this session, author Lori Goldstein, a pantser turned plotter, will share the techniques she uses to write first drafts that function more like second or third drafts in half the time. Using these tips and tricks, Lori cut her writing time down from three years to three months. With advice for managing both your writing life and your personal life, Lori will give you the tools you need for more efficient writing not just for NaNoWriMo, but for every month of the year.
