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.
