Do you write by the seat of your pants?

Do you want to write faster?

This workshop teaches a minimalist approach to story development to accommodate “pantsers” (those who write by the seat of their pants) while still establishing the big picture for the plot and character arc. By the end of this class, students will have enough direction to make “Fast Drafting” techniques work for them.

The class identifies the basic “need to know” plot points and character development steps that even a pantser can use. Attendees will receive several tools (worksheets and beat sheets) developed especially for pantsers.

Due to the depth of information, this workshop is best for non-beginner writers. (If you’d like to take this class despite your newbie status, “Beat Sheet Basics: Know Your Story’s Structure” can get you up to speed.)

“Jami Gold is not only the master of structure and plotting spreadsheets, she’s also the master at taking all those books on craft and rolling them into a single, easy, cohesive plan.” — Melinda Collins

“Writers! This is the BEST online workshop I’ve taken thus far. She provides guidance (and materials) on how to fast-draft a story with a basic outline (and more!). Using this method, I was able to fast draft THREE 100k manuscripts in 2-months a piece (over only 8 months). RECOMMENDED!!” — Jennifer Rose

“For those of you who follow her blog but haven’t taken one of her courses, I highly recommend them – she is an AMAZING teacher!” — Harley Christensen
