Call for Participants: Wild-Ass Novel Project

Writer Friends in COS/DEN area: I want to try something weird, a collaborative novel project using a particular technique. The specifics (like genre) will vary on who/how many/where the people are who want to jump in. I want to run this something like a writer group, where we meet for a couple of hours and write: like, 1/2hr kibitiz, an alarm goes off, and we speed-write for an hour or so, the alarm goes off, and done.

I want this to be a NON STRESS project, a fun/learning project. There will be no critiquing. When we’re done we can decide what, if anything, to do with it. This is just to get writing and look at plotting.

OWNers and people taking the DWS online workshops: This is the novel-in-a-weekend project, just not in a weekend.

Drop me a line if you’re interested, and I’ll get a conversation started somewhere convenient.

    Plan will mostly be determined among participants. We’ll co-plot and then write scenes individually based on simple scene plot sheets that we’ll all put together.
