SPOOC Your Fiction!
Jump-start your fiction by crafting the two sentence core of your story. Acclaimed novelist Deborah Chester advocates this method for making sure there’s enough story to your story – by writing down the Situation, Protagonist, Objective, Opponent and Climax in a concise two-sentence format before you begin. It’s a great tool for starting a novel, getting one back on track, or even creating an effective elevator pitch. Come try it out with us!
Join us at the King Road library for a chance to have other members critique your work. Bring a selection that can be read aloud in 5 minutes or less. It can be a whole story, part of a story, or just a little something you threw together! We hope to see you there!
