Story-Builders! Let’s Get Started Plotting! – an Indiana Author Award Workshop
We’ll start with your idea, and build out from there – explore the characters, organize the plot, outline dramatic events. Here’s what we’ll be doing in this fun and practical workshop:
Developing your story through the Three Plotlines (External, Internal, Interactional)
Channeling your characters and discovering their journey, goal, and strengths/weaknesses
Changing the characters through events of the plot
Intensifying the conflict and character change
Ending the story with drama and resolution
It sounds like a lot, but we can do it all in one workshop! By the time we’re done, you’ll have an outline of the three acts of the story plot, AND a summary of the character’s internal journey. You’ll be excited and ready to get started writing or revising your story! There’s a bigger market for stories than ever before, so here’s your chance to plunge right into that story you’ve wanted to write.
This event is open to the public but space is limited. Register through the library’s online event calendar linked at the left.
