Description: 

One of the biggest obstacles any writer faces is finishing the first draft of a novel. As Joyce Carol Oates said, "Getting the first draft finished is like pushing a peanut with your nose across a very dirty floor." Enter National Novel Writing Month, which has generated one of the most effective approaches to writing a first draft and bounding to new imaginative heights.

Grant Faulkner, executive director of National Novel Writing Month, will discuss the power of diving in, banishing one's inner editor, and taking creative risks by writing with abandon. He'll also talk about ways to sustain your creative momentum year-round. Come prepared to write--with abandon!
