Your NaNoLansing MLs continue to be hard at work to help you prepare for our enchanting month. We’ll be revealing the long awaited details next week so keep an eye on your USA::Michigan::Lansing regional emails. 😉
Pre-NaNo Preparatory Workshops:
Our first workshop last week was a great success with about 20 wrimos (that’s participants of NaNoWriMo, for those who don’t know) who came to learn one of the secrets that make the Harry Potter series so wildly successful. Thank you everyone for coming!
** Tomorrow! Wednesday 10-19-16 from 7-9:30 pm in the group room at Old Chicago – 1938 W Grand River Ave, Okemos
How Characters Add Depth to Your Story
Come join us as we learn how characters are the backbone of any good story. In this workshop, we will explore ways to develop characters, to learn who your characters are, what is their purpose, and to use your characters to drive your story onward!
