This is not really TeXworks-specific: what you are looking for is the 
different 'interaction modes'. TeX can be instructed to run past most 
errors by giving the command-line option


To do that in TeXworks, open the Preferences and on the Typesetting tab 
choose the tool you use (pdfLaTeX most likely). Use the '+' icon to add 
an additional argument, edit the new entry to read 
"-interaction=nonstopmode" (no quotes) then use the 'up arrow' to move 
it above the "$fullname" line.
