I started Lazette Gifford’s 2 Year Novel course on the first week of January. I had purchased the course in 2007 and started using it for one of my many false starts, but then life happened. Since my 2017 resolution is to complete the first draft of a new novel (finally) I decided to dust … More Progress Report: Lazette Gifford’s 2 Year Novel. 2017, Weeks 1-5
