March 5Staying Organized During the Chaos of Writing a Novel with Robin Lee Hatcher VIA ZOOM

Chaos is often a good description of a novelist’s life. A writer must keep track of plot, characters, productivity, and much more while also trying to stay on top of life in general. In over forty years as a writer, Robin has developed a number of techniques and strategies to help her stay organized even in the midst of chaos. This workshop will look at many of the tools she uses or has used to organize her characters from book to book, to make sure her imaginary world comes to life, and to keep herself as productive and positive as possible.

Robin Lee Hatcher is the author of 85 novels and novellas with over six million copies of her books in print. She is known for her heartwarming and emotionally charged stories of faith, courage, and love. Her numerous awards include the RITA® Award, the Carol Award, the Christy Award, the HOLT Medallion, the National Reader’s Choice Award, and the Faith, Hope & Love Reader’s Choice Award. Robin is also the recipient of prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards from both American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America®. When not writing, she enjoys being with her family, spending time in the beautiful Idaho outdoors, Bible art journaling, reading books that make her cry, watching romantic movies, and decorative planning. Robin makes her home on the outskirts of Boise, sharing it with a demanding Papillon dog and a persnickety tuxedo cat.
