ABOUT THE CLASS: Fast Draft: Itâ€™s easy to come up with excuses why you canâ€™t finish your manuscript. Youâ€™re busy, life is crazy, there is always something. The truth is there are no real excuses. If you want to sell a book, you have to finish. Thereâ€™s no time like the present. Author Candace Havens has developed a step-by-step process to help you finish your work in progress in just two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, youâ€™ll have your first draft. Revision Hell: It can be daunting going back in and editing, tightening and cleaning up your manuscript. Thatâ€™s why author Candace Havens developed a system to help get through that process step-by-step. In two weeks youâ€™ll have a polished manuscript that is ready to sell.
