Writing your first draft in a month is the ultimate challenge, but with the right determination, great time management, and a developed story idea that keeps you motivated, you can achieve the impossible. 

In this OnDemand webinar, literary agent Katie Shea Boutillier explains helpful tools on how to prep the synopsis, lay out the plot, figure out the setting, develop interesting characters, focus on the hook, write the scenes that matter, and close out the month with those beautiful words; The End. With Katie's help, your words will fall much easier onto the pages. Her encouraging yet no-nonsense approach leaves writers feeling more ready than ever, and excited to finally get your butts in the chair to accomplish the first draft in a month.
