Write Your Novel
in Three Months!
Maybe you’ve heard of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and you’ve thought to yourself: writing a whole novel in one month sounds intimidating.
Yes, one month is not a lot of time. Especially with everything else going on in your life: work commitments, family commitments, time to eat and sleep, etc.
But how about…three months? It can be done, and it can be done by you! The Resort is going to help you get your novel written by the end of 2022, with the support of structure and community.
Our Write Your Novel in Three Months workshop is a fun and welcoming, community-based workshop, where you will receive the tools you need to strategize and actually write your novel. The workshop includes craft classes to set you up for success, weekly accountability check-ins throughout your three-month writing sprint, and steady Q&As with your workshop instructors, to keep you on track to finish your novel in just 90 days.
Your classes begin September 8, 2022, and we will help you end the year with a finished, complete draft of your novel!
We look forward to seeing you in this workshop if:
you have a novel you've been excited to write but haven't been able to make headway on it
you find strength in structure and community
the accountability of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, which takes place every November) is appealing to you, but three months to write a novel sounds more reasonable to you than one month!
Emily Stone and David Samuel Levinson, a fun and engaging duo who have helped dozens and dozens of writers finish their books over the past two decades, will give you the tools of structure and strategy via live online classes in September, so that you can write your novel in three months with the confidence of a solid plan!
From October to December, you will write your novel alongside others, where you can engage in a dedicated online community space facilitated by Resort founder and writing coach Catherine LaSota. Your online community space includes:
regular accountability check ins to keep you on track with your novel progress
drop-in writing hours so you can write alongside other people who are dedicated to finishing their novel in three months
live Q&As with Emily Stone and David Levinson along the way, to ensure that you don’t feel lost or alone during any difficult parts of your novel-writing process
To write a book in 90 days, it is imperative to have plot and structure nailed down. The content of this 3+ month workshop will begin in September 2022, with Emily Stone providing a welcoming, guided space via a two-hour live workshop on Zoom, where she will help students walk away with an outline for their book. Two weeks later, we will meet again with David Levinson in a two-hour live class and q&a on Zoom, to go over the necessary parts to finishing a novel in three months, including: creating an obsession to write; setting unbreakable goals; planning for the next day's writing; and getting out of your own way.
Our 90-day novel-writing timer begins at the start of October.
Get your novel written by the end of 2022!
