This day-long workshop is hosted by the Florida Heritage Book Festival folks.

Ideas hit us all the time, but we don't always know how to turn those ideas into a novel, or what's the best way for us to develop those ideas. In this workshop, you'll learn multiple ways to break down your idea and turn it into a solid plan for your novel. You'll work on exercises designed to help you:
  • Brainstorm your idea
  • Find your protagonist and antagonist
  • Create compelling characters
  • Find your core conflicts and use them to build your plot
  • Develop your setting
  • Determine the key turning points of the plot
  • Discover your theme
  • Find the right structure for your writing process
This hands-on workshop will guide you through the novel-planning process and help you find the plot and story within your idea. By the end of the day, you'll have a solid outline (or guide for those who don't like to outline) to your story.
