The Perfect Class for the NaNo Novelist

crest-bda7b7a6e1b57bb9fb8ce9772b8faafbI hate to be pushy–though the Beneficent Mr. Hall would probably argue with that–but I’m going to shove you over to this NaNo prep class with my friend and agent Sally Apokedak. I shared all the particulars for NaNo Prep: Planning the High Concept Novel over at The Muffin so I’ll wait a second while you read the details.

…(humming, humming, humming….)….

Back? Okay, now, obviously, there’s a ton of wonderful writing stuff about this class–and you cannot beat the price, right? But I think the most wonderful thing of all is that, no matter what kind of novel you write, from chapter book to adult fiction, you’re going to get feedback on your idea and figure out what a high concept novel is.

That is no small feat. You can write–and write well–until the cows come home. But if you’re stuck in a “been there, done that before” scenario, you’re never going to break out.

It’s been my experience that most people (and I’m including myself here) don’t realize they’re writing about the same old, same old. They think they have a fresh new idea. They think they have a high concept. They think their premise is THE one that’s going to knock off the socks of an editor or agent.

Until it doesn’t. And then it’s back to the drawing board (or Precious the Laptop).

Here’s a short class at a great price by a wonderful writer and agent who gets it. And you’ll get it, too, if you take the class. So shove off, already.

  1. Well, I have to say that I agree with the Beneficent Mr. Hall. You are kinda pushy. But in a really great, I-know-I’m-peer-pressuring-you-but-it’s-for-your-own-good kind of way. You’ve never pushed me into something I didn’t thank you for later. So thanks. Only in advance this time. šŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for pushing people my way, Cathy. šŸ™‚ I appreciate your…um…gentle persuasion even if the Beneficent Mr. Hall doesn’t. šŸ™‚

  3. Good to know. I don’t have any novel ideas yet, but if I do… Hey, I didn’t know Sally was your agent! I must have missed the announcement??
