Operation Agent Ink Classes

Hey lovely gals and guys! Are you ready for Operation Agent Ink??

It's tomorrow!!

Okay, so firstly, let me say, if you are participating in NaNo this year, can you let me know? I signed up! YIKES!!! and I have no idea what Ia m doing. I got lost over there, so that's what I 'll be doing this afternoon. Trying to figure ever thing out!

Now, for the classes!

Here is how everything is going down. Classes will be sent out on Thursday's. Check-in will be on Monday. Check in's will be for asking questions or help with the assignment.

Now, assignments will not be like school work. They will be suggestions to improve your writing or to check you work for mistakes or gaps in character, plot or storyline.

Then, there will be help for editing.

Many have asked about mentoring and what all it involves. Mentoring will be done once a week in the form of a private email. You can ask questions, send pieces of your writing (up to two pages) or ask for help on something you are stuck on with your writing. This will not be a permanent situation. It's only for the workshop. If you have a great CP, feel free to ask them for help.

Classes that will be offered:

An Authors Voice and How to Find It

Point of View: Which Way are you Pointing?

Please Tell Me How to Show: Showing vs. Telling

Active Advice For Passive Writing

Characters That Are Alive

Setting and Description that are Vivid

Creating a World: World Building

Storytelling With Your Muse

Climbing Over the Wall: Writers Block Inspiration

Writing Your Novel in 30 Days

Editing for a Polished Manuscript

Your Submission Package

*****************

Each of the these classes will be distributed evenly throughout the next weeks.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

You can comment below with the classes you are most interested in joining. Because a couple of my helpers are no longer helping, it will help me organize the classes more, as I'll be taking on more lessons!

Looking forward to the month of November. I have 3 project going on this month!

  1. Hi, Ink. I'll be joining all the classes.

    Here's to a jam-packed-writing-frenzy November!

  2. Lots of good classes. I'm interested in the author's voice, showing vs. telling, characters that are alive, settings and descriptions, and world building. I don't know how many classes each student can effectively handle, but those are the ones I'm most interested in.

  4. Hi Ink, not sure I'll hit them all, but I'm looking forward to jumping in. I actually think all the topics look great and could be helpful. No matter how many times we've read it, it's good to review it.

  6. I may not be able to keep up with all of them, but I'm going to try. I'm doing Nano, too, but it'll be limited due to an edit-for-hire job. Thanks for working on this!

  7. Hello!

    I am doing NaNo, too! This will be a fourth year. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of everything. If you'd like some tips, stop by my blog. I've just posted some. :)

    The classes sound awesome, but I'll be swamped with NaNo. Maybe next time!

    1. hehe! I love crazy!

      Yes, I'll be more busy than I can shake a stick at, but here's the thing. I broke my foot and have lots a free time with nothing to do but prop my foot up and write.

  9. I look forward to it. Which classes I join in may vary according to my available time, so I may have to see how I go if that's okay. You are busy organising all this!

  11. I'm going to try and do all the classes. I'm also doing NaNo (my name at NaNo is MeadowAngel- add me to your writing buddies if you want and I'll try to answer any questions/help you find your way around). This is my 3rd year doing it. :)

  12. Good luck with NaNo! I'm in too - feel free to add me as a buddy (kristam) and we can cheer each other on!

  13. I'm thinking I may touch on all the classes except 'An Authors Voice and How to Find It' & 'Writing Your Novel in 30 Days'. Although the latter would be interesting reading, I find it exhausting to maintain a steady flow of words for that long.

  14. I want to do them all! They sound awesome. Thanks agains for doing this.

  15. I am also doing NaNo (kind of a last minute decision) so I'm going to play everything by ear. But the classes all sound great! Thank you so much for all your hard work :)

    An Authors Voice and How to Find It
    Point of View: Which Way are you Pointing?
    Please Tell Me How to Show: Showing vs. Telling

    I'm still hemming and hawing on NaNo because I just a few days ago finished my first manuscript, almost 84,000 words in 31 days. I'm leaning more toward pending more time in November critiquing.

  17. I'm interested in all of them, but especially the Characters class!

  18. I'm doing NaNo, too! I intend to use my NaNo novel in this workshop!

    I am also doing PiBoIdMo (yes, call me crazy, but my writing needs a kick start - November must be my month! LOL!)

    1. You are doing the same thing as I am! I'm doing Nano and PiBoIdMo, too. Plus another project. And I was doing some editing on a couple older projects, but I am putting them on hold for now... I wonder why? hehe

  19. I'm way in over my head with nano. That being said I'm interested in all of them.

  25. I have three I am interested in: Show vs tell, world building and POV (first POV is covered, third? Yeah I need help!!)

  26. I am going to try to attend them all, because I feel all of them could be so helpful, but the ones I am most interested in are: active advice for passive writing, creating a world: world building, editing for a polished manuscript, and submission package.
