Finish Your Manuscript — Really! [Jennifer Haupt]
Intermediate/Advanced | Sometimes it takes a stealth combo of craft tactics and psychological warfare to overcome the enemies of creativity: resistance, self-doubt, and procrastination. This class is designed for people who have at least 100 pages written of a novel or memoir and are committed to finishing it — really! We’ll work on exercises designed to motivate and facilitate forward motion, with realistic goal-setting and accountability in class and optional check-in with a Facebook group between classes. Students will workshop in class and complete structural exercises.
