Workshop - Actions & Reactions
Updated: Mar 27, 2021
I love helping other authors and am always happy to help writing groups by presenting my workshop:
How to Use Your Character’s Actions and Reactions to Build an Emotional Scene and Drive Your Plot Forward.
Whether you're a meticulous plotter or you write-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, it is an author’s job to send their characters on a journey where they struggle, discover, and change while they solve a crime, find true love, conquer a monster, or outwit the bad guy. The question is how?
This practical workshop uses a hands-on approach to apply the principle of show don’t tell at the scene level. We’ll work through examples where we’ll use a character’s actions and reactions to move from one plot point to the next, and in so doing maximize emotion on the page.
