How to Vomit a Novella in 12 Hours
Anxiety and/or procrastination are perhaps two of the biggest barriers to writing a longer-form work. In this workshop, using her ‘vomit a novella in 12 hours’ technique, Chloe will guide participants through the preparation, prompts and practices needed to put this into action.
Participants will discuss and participate in prompts and activities exploring accountability, dealing with anxiety and procrastination, (not) editing, planning vs. panstering, and breaking a word count down into bite-size chunks to write the first draft of a 12,000 word novella in 12 lots of one-hour sessions.

Parking is available in the brick driveway and in front of the hedge, also on the upper gravel level (to the right of the house) and along the street. Overflow parking can be found down the gravel driveway to the immediate left of the house (look for the No Thoroughfare sign); please drive down here slowly.
