Home > Writing > Blogs > March’s OCCRWA Online Class is “Speed Writing: Which Plan Works Best for You?”, with MM Pollard
About the Class: Itâ€™s easy to find how-to books on writing fast, but which one represents the solution to your plotting problem?
Let MM Pollard, writer, editor, and workshop presenter, help you sort through all of the different advice on this subject in eight lessons. She will focus on increasing daily word count as well as on quicker methods to plan and organize your book, using information from several fiction and nonfiction writers who have done just that. Students will be encouraged to try the techniques presented in each lesson to see if they work for them.
