"90 Days to Your Novel" by Sarah Domet WEEKLY BOOK STUDY
April 20th this group will begin "90 Days to Your Novel" by Sarah Domet. By July 20th, we will have a complete draft of our novels! Maybe you've been working on a novel for a while. Maybe you've had an idea that you have put away until a more convenient time that is never going to come! Maybe you just need some accountability to "finish the damn book." Join us as we make a three-month commitment to get a draft down on paper, using Domet's process. Participants will come together every Friday for three months in a meeting room at The Butler Brothers Building, 500 S. Ervay Street, which is directly between Dallas City Hall and the Main Library on Young Street. Meetings will last approximately one hour from 6 to 7 p.m. In between meetings, writers will complete the daily assignments per Domet's instructions in the book. Purchase a copy at your favorite book store, or order a new or used copy through Amazon. (Be careful! There is another book with a similar title, but Domet's book is the one we'll use for this class.) New participants will be welcome the first two or three weeks--as long as they are willing to play catch up! You do not have to attend EVERY weekly meeting; we understand there will sometimes be conflicts. But, you do have to commit to the daily work. At the end of our 90 Days, we'll celebrate with a reading of one of our favorite chapters. All WRITE NOW members will be invited to attend the reading. Order your book, put the days on your calendar to keep up, and plan to join us on Friday, April 20th with your laptop or notebook when we'll complete "Day #1" together and make our commitment to finish our novels by July! NOTE: Read the first part of the book before our first meeting if possible. Friday will mark the first of our 90 days which begins in Part II of the book. Who's ready for this three-month adventure?

What we're about

This group explores writing opportunities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area; forms critique circles; and shares writing resources and talents for personal improvement and the greater good. We welcome writers of all skill levels, including beginners, and our work spans a wide variety of genres, including poetry, fiction, journaling, grant-writing, business-writing, news writing, creative nonfiction, ekphrastic writing, and other types of composition. Our meetings are nonjudgemental events in which we support each other in our writing efforts and provide critique to the extent it is desired.
