2017 WRITE: PEOPLE: Jane, Plain Jane: Part 8 I can believe it!

  Jane, Plain Jane: Part 8 I can believe it!The writers group at Nara’s Nook has started a learning and production project using the guide book  “The 90-day novel,” by Alan Watt.  To contribute to the project without spending the time on a novel, I am writing a short story or small play using some of the guidance from the book.  Writers meeting at Nara’s NookMy Name Is Jane.
