Cindy Dees will join us May 25th to share one of her favorite plotting tools. It''s a method she developed for taking all those characters running around in your head and turning them into plot lines, conflicts, and action sequences for your story. In addition, this method uncovers all those juicy secrets your characters have been keeping from you so you can write richer, more conflicted, more interesting characters. This method works both in the planning stages of a story and in the editing and revision process. Cindy specializes in teaching how-to classes for experienced writers, and this workshop is designed to be useful for both beginners and experienced authors.
