Are you serious about writing romance? Perhaps you were brave enough to enter Mills & Boon’s New Voices competition or are having a go at National Novel Writing Month?
It takes guts to write a book, and we need all the help we can get while we do it. So if you’re in the market for some hands-on advice, why not try award-winning Harlequin Romance author Donna Alward’s on-line workshop, Blasting through the Blah, which is running next week, 14th-20th November.
Blasting through the Blah … what a great title for a workship! That’s EXACTLY what we need to do when we write. If you’re anything like me, you’ll get lost in the blah the first time you try to get your story down on paper (or on screen for you techies).
I’m trying to write a rough draft at the moment, and I am wallowing in blah, I can tell you. Reading through the course description below, I found myself nodding along and thinking ‘yep … yep … yep, need to think about that … God, I always forget to do that …oh, yeah, that too …’ Even though I know what I need to do, it still always helps to have someone else remind me to keep on track, no matter how many books you’ve written.
Donna won a Bookseller’s Best award and a Colorado Award of Excellence this year and knows what she’s about when it comes to writing romance. She's also a ridiculously nice person, so you couldn't be in better hands. If you’re looking to sharpen up your writing skills, sign up at Savvy Authors next week and start blasting through that blah ...
