I’m at it again!
I’ll be presenting “Pacing” at the upcoming FWA Writing Workshop on April 28, 2018.
Yep. People are gonna pay to listen to me talk again – and you could be one! I’ll be dazzling attendees with my presentation, then dazzling the bartender – and possibly you – in the lounge afterward.
Seriously, I’m flattered to be asked to present these topics, and you’d benefit for attending.
Story pacing—keep a reader glued to their seat and turning pages. (That one’s by me.) But I’ll be sitting in on some of these other workshops, too:
Arcs – by Jade Kerrion
All good stories are propelled forward by conflict and change. In this session, discover the importance and the difference among character arcs, story arcs, and series arcs. We’ll also discuss how to seamlessly blend all three into riveting chapters and page-turning stories.
Tropes – by Tracie Roberts
Tropes, when used appropriately, can help authors meet the expectations of readers and heighten the reading experience. In my presentation on using tropes in writing, I will explain the difference between cliches and tropes, assist attendees with identifying tropes and avoiding cliches, and model how to rewrite common tropes with a fresh twist. Attendees will have the opportunity to put into practice what they learn.
World Building/Setting – by Jennifer Siddoway
How to create a world your characters and readers will never want to leave.
Yep, you gotta pay. But it includes a continental breakfast, lunch, and beverages
