On the Road: How to Write an Opening Scene that Hooks Readers

By Janice Hardy, @Janice_Hardy

I'm over at Writers in the Storm today, talking about How to Write an Opening Scene that Hooks Readers. Come on over and say hello!

And for those in the South Florida area (or those within driving distance to it), a reminder about my workshop next weekend in Delray Beach, FL. Seats are still available.

The Authors Academy Writers Workshops
Saturday, July 13, 10:00am to Noon
Murder on the Beach Mystery Bookstore
At their new location: 104 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach
All workshops are $25 per person. Reservations are requested.

The Muddle in the Middle

The “boggy middle” has claimed many a writer, but with a little planning and forethought, writers can sail right through it. In this workshop, you'll discover why the middle is such a troublesome chunk of the novel, and how it’s really where all the fun happens in a story. You’ll also learn how to avoid getting sucked into the mire, what to do keep your pace moving, and some nifty plotting tricks to help you create stronger story arcs and conflicts.

The Florida Authors Academy Writers Workshop series runs all summer long, with workshops every Saturday. Get the full lineup of workshops here.
