Writing Productivity

This Saturday (13 November 2021, beginning at 11:30 a.m. MT) Kate Baray will host an Idaho Writers Guild “Write Track” session a topic relevant to most writers — conveniently in the middle of NaNoWriMo month.

She’ll discuss two of her favorite tactics: accountability and sprinting.

The online meeting will open with discussion, move to Kate’s suggestions, and close with some short sprints.

You can RSVP on Facebook or just join the meeting on Zoom.
