You have a great idea for a novel, but never seem to get very far when you sit down to write. In this class for absolute beginners and those in need of a refresher and/or a kick in the butt, we'll review the basics of novel writing, with an emphasis on plot, characterization, point of view, setting, and narrative time (scene, summary, flashback). Our focus will be on generating new ideas and material for your novel though craft presentations and writing exercises. We won't critique or workshop your writing, but we will share some brief writing that we create during our week together.
