October 19: Think Tank 
Deanna Washington–Workshop:
How to Shrink and Grow Time: A Tool to Help You Get Your Writing Done

 Do you have a book you are working on but…

  • One more day passes when you’ve not written one word
  • Progress keeps stalling
  • You just don’t have blocks of time to make it happen
  • When you do sit down to write you feel guilty because you “should” be working on other things

Come learn the technique that Deanna Washington used to complete seven first-draft novels in 2 years, and is using to chomp through the second drafts.

This is a workshop, so sharpen your pencils!

Deanna Washington has been a graphic designer for over 30 years, and is an author and artist. She is working on 7 novels and has published 3 non-fiction books.
