Join us on August 18th at the Washington Branch Library to create compelling characters! Using various character building exercises, we’ll explore what it takes to get readers to care about the people in your story. Bring pen and paper, laptop or tablet, and start getting into your character’s psyche.
Back by popular demand, come work on your plot with your fellow writers! Use the plot breaking method to spot flaws in your plot, unresolved subplots, and where you should really start your story. Bring your work in progress and work on it!
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!
