Back to Basics Workshop is about writing efficiently and effectively. It will combine a daily lesson with both original exercises and exercises applied to your own work in progress. This workshop is open to new writers, or to writers who want to sharpen their skills. It’s also open to all genres.
The schedule of topics will be:
Sunday – Point of View
Monday – Passive vs. Active Writing
Tuesday – Show Not Tell
Wednesday – Strong Word Choices
Thursday – Managing Backstory
Friday – Delivering Dialogue
Saturday – Creating Conflict.
Each morning I will post a lesson, with examples to illustrate each point, and exercises to practice the lesson of the day. In workshop mode, we will exchange and review the exercises day by day.
