Storytelling for Pantsers: How to Write and Revise Your Novel Without an Outline

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018, 5:30 p.m.

Are you a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants writer? Hungry for a book that shows you how to write and revise your novel without an outline? Discover the secret sauce to help those of us seat-flyers get at least some grounding in what we do, and to find and use a system in the chaos that is pantsing, as we present Storytelling for Pantsers: How to Write and Revise Your Novel Without an Outline.

Author and writing Coach Annalisa Parent will walk you through the elements of a publishable manuscript. Based on her decade-long career helping writers to publish, and a twenty-year writing career, she’ll pull back the curtain on some of the tricks of the trade.

Free handouts provided. Materials needed for our mini-writing-workshop: something to write with. (pencil and paper, laptop, tablet and chisel…) To register, email annalisa@datewiththemuse.com. (Event is free and open to the public.)

This book is intended to help those of us seat-flyers get at least some grounding in what we do, and to find and use a system in the chaos that is pantsing.

This book is for you if you:

  • Are still on chapter one - You should read this book if you have started a novel at least 68 times (the same novel) and only written the first chapter
  • Jump around - You should read this book if you write chapter 1. And then chapter 5. And then chapter 2. etc.
  • Write to Discover - You should read this book if you need to write to discover your story. ("I just watch my characters and write down what they do.")
  • Get Lost in the Weeds - You should read this book if you get lost in the weeds of writing and revision because portions of your novel are in different phases of the writing process.
  • Feel Writing is Complicated - You should read this book if you feel frustrated because "Dang it; writing's hard enough. Why do I always have to complicate it?"
  • Wear Pants - You should read this book if you think the cover of this book is cool, or wear pants. Because, hey, the cover is cool. So are you, and so is this book. (Who says you can't judge a book by it's cover? Pshaw.)
