Many books and workshops teach the basics of plotting: conflict, complications, climax. Now learn advanced techniques that will make a
decent plot dynamic. Start with a “grab you by the throat” opening to
pull readers into the story. Learn how to pack the plot full by
complicating your complications. Control your pacing through sentence and paragraph length. And finally, encourage late-night reading under the covers cliffhanger chapter endings. Learn techniques to make any story or book better. Novelists will benefit from these insights, whether they are just starting out or have years of experience.
I've given variations of this talk at workshops around the country, and I'm doing an online video version for Delve Writing next month. I have also conducted forum workshops like the ones you have.
