Just a heads up that my monthly post is up over at Pub Crawl, where I'm talking about the benefits of a small writers' conference. Come on over and say hello!
Start the new year off with a writing bookshop!
If you're in the Atlanta area this January, I'm giving a free novel-planning workshop at the Northeast Spruill Oaks Library.
Planning Your Novel in 10 Easy Steps will cover the key turning points of plot and how to find those points in your story idea. You'll learn a simple process to find and develop the key novel elements, from creating characters to determining the conflict to crafting the major plot points. Explore how to use goals, conflicts, and stakes to build a story and develop characters, and how to approach a story in a way that will make it easier to write and be more marketable to agents, editors, and readers.
