Breakout Novel Intensive Workshop - I'm Getting Excited to Attend

Front Cover
I have been a fan of Donald Maass' Breakout Novel theories for years. I have taken a couple of classes with the "master" at writer's conferences, but in a few days I will be attending his Breakout Novel Intensive week-long workshop. There I will be focusing on a manuscript that I recently finished with the intent to garner ideas to take it to the next level - hopefully to a level of excellence.

I was surprised to find that many of the attendees are repeat students, which is a testament to the value of the workshop. In the coming weeks I will post highlights of my experience (as  much as I can without breaking any copyright issues), and I hope you will stop by and comment.

I used Don's Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook to improve Koicto, now rated at 5 stars on Amazon...even by people I don't know. Check out his books on Amazon (link below):
