“How to Optimize Your Writing Process

 Do you feel like you have no idea how to write the next book every time you
start a new novel? Have you never finished writing a novel before? Does it take you forever to write a novel? Do you feel overwhelmed every time you start a new novel with no idea how 
to make your process more reliable? Does your editor as you when you can have your next novel finished and you have no idea how to answer her? Do you want to improve your efficiency in completing quality novels in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of difficulty?

Three years ago, I would have answered YES to every one of those questions! But I made it my mission to improve my writing process because I recognized what you all recognize—we have only so much time and resources and we want to make the most of them. Participants will learn some definitions, measures and methods of improving writing efficiency for the purpose of improving their own individual writing process.

Writing as USA Today bestselling author, Stephanie Queen, Stephanie has published 17
novels and novellas in the past five years. Though not prolific by some standards, she has
improved her writing process by 800% since completing her first published novel.
Although it took her 4 years to complete, she won the International Digital Award
Winner for Best Contemporary Romance Novel for Playing the Game in 2013. A
longtime member of RWA, Stephanie is a resident of New Hampshire and has a Masters
Degree in Literature & Creative Writing from Harvard University.
