Using corporate techniques, Lynn will show how to gather all the elements of your novel together before you start writing, to insure your manuscript’s success. Using a questionnaire, you’ll walk through all the elements of your story that most writers don’t think about before they start writing, helping you to understand your story and characters and avoiding rewrites and weak characters.
Lynn Lorenz lives in Texas, where she’s a fan of all things Texan, like Longhorns, big hair, and cowboys in tight jeans. She’s never met a comma she didn’t like, and enjoys editing and brainstorming with other writers. Lynn spends most of her time writing about hot sex with even hotter heroes, plot twists, werewolves, and medieval swashbucklers. She’s currently at work on her latest book, making herself giggle and blush, and avoiding all the housework.
Join us Saturday, September 13 when we welcome DiAnn Mills, who will be teaching us about CREATING THE ESSENTIAL BACKSTORY.
This hands-on workshop shows the importance of how everything that happened to your character before chapter one, line one, motivates you character into fresh and compelling action. By learning the backstory of a character, actions in the present are easier for the writer to predict according to experiences and lessons learned.
