This session by author and Agile Project Manager David R. Slayton will teach you techniques for creating time for your writing and incorporating it into your daily life. We’ll look at ways to help you write consistently while avoiding burnout. We’ll also discuss setting achievable goals and breaking the writing process into manageable pieces. Finally, we’ll look at an agile, flexible approach to writing that will help with time management and planning in order to complete a novel in a realistic time frame.


David R. Slayton (he/him) grew up in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where finding fantasy novels was pretty challenging and finding fantasy novels with diverse characters was downright impossible. Now he lives in Denver, Colorado, and writes the books he always wanted to read. His debut, White Trash Warlock, was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. In 2015, David founded Trick or Read, an initiative to give out books along with candy to children on Halloween as well as uplift lesser-known authors or those from marginalized backgrounds. David is a regular speaker and panelist at fan cons and writing conferences
