I’m doing two webinars in next three weeks. They’re one hour long, and free to Write on the River members. BUT membership is only $35/year for this worthy writing organization, so even if you only participate in these two classes, it ends up costing you only $17.50 apiece. And there will likely be more webinar events from WOTR thru the spring, which will end up being free to you as a WOTR member. Hope to see you on-line for some fun classes!
Saturday, April 18, 10:00-11:15 AM – Developing a Powerful Plot
I’ll provide insights into plot and character starting with suggested questions to ask of an initial novel concept, questions that can lead us to a more nuanced, layered story. We’ll consider how the major character can help deepen the plot and how a convincing story arc can shine a light on what happens next.
Saturday, May 2, 10:00-11:15 AM – Pacing in the Novel
We’ll look at strategies to avoid the doldrums that can beset long fiction. We’ll investigate the underpinnings that give horsepower to a story–letting you decide when to step on the gas and when to back off. And never fear, we’ll take a closer look at causes of the infamous saggy middle of the novel, and some antidotes that can keep the wind in your story’s sails.
