Agenda


Day 1: Wednesday, October 10th. 9 am Embassy Suites by Hilton Convention Center Las Vegas
Meet in the hotel lobby and start your tour of the Las Vegas area. Look for characters, scenes, and settings to add to your book. Watch and observe the sights and sounds to use when writing your books. Work to create a catalogue of ideas to use when writing in the future or to add to the book you’re currently writing.
2 pm Return to the Hotel for Instruction
After a morning spent collecting these characters, scenes, settings, and events, come back to the hotel where our group of experts is going to teach you what you need to know to put those ideas to work for you. Each presenter will give a 30-minute workshop over the next four hours to help you make the most out of what you’ve gained, including how to get from chapter 1 to done in 40 days or less.
