Four Session Workshop Series
Session 1 – Introduction, Analyzing Your Novel — Why haven’t you finished your novel? We’ll explore the reasons and work toward steps to finish.
Session 2 – Prompts and Precarious Situations — Rewriting isn’t over until the book is to the printer or released online. These exercises will help you finish the rewriting process while expanding the breadth of your story.
Session 3 – “The Rule of Three” and other Climactic Considerations — Remember the five senses you learned in grade school science? Put them to work to improve the depth of your story.
Session 4 – The Final Conflict — Actually, there’s more than one ‘final conflict’: How does the story end? Are you truly finished with the work? Finished? Now what?
