10/5 Online Workshop: "The Quick and Dirty Novel Plan"
October 5th at 8pm Eastern (5pm Pacific, 6pm Mountain, 7pm Central), 90 minutes, via Zoom

This one-shot workshop is an opportunity for a writer to hone in on the specific, driving details of their novel--whether in-mind, in-progress, or ready for editing.

Cost: $10, free for Patreon Subscribers and members of the NaNoTribo group (SSWS Alumni).

After registering, you will be contacted via email with the Zoom info for the workshop. The last day to register is October 4th, 2022 (by midnight Pacific). Contact MikeJackWrites@gmail.com if you have any questions or difficulty accessing the workshop.

Narration

Mike Jack reads stories. Here is an example of an original, "Dearest Detested Father." His experience in theatre, as a writer, actor, director, and dialect coach give him a number of voices and personalities to choose from when telling stories and running role-playing games.

Singing

Check out Mike Jack's Youtube Page for songs. Enjoy covers, parodies, and originals.

Here is a fun tavern song to kick off your fantasy RPG: "The Thunder Hammer," a tall-tale of daring-dos against a cockroach king, and the one weapon that could stop him.
