This Saturday, September 23, I’m giving a workshop as part of a full day program of writing instruction and discussion for Texas Writes. As always, the program will be given at a rural Texas library. It’s free and open to the public, but if you want to attend, you should call and preregister.
PLOTTING TO KILL: WRITING MYSTERIES AND THRILLERS
How do you create compelling characters and put them in memorable conflict? Meg will talk about heroes, villains, and the hook, and discuss techniques to to ramp up the suspense and tension in your story. She’ll show how writers can use point of view, flashbacks, and dialogue to create riveting scenes, keep readers guessing about what will happen next, and have them turning the pages until the end.
Texas Writes at the Bosque Arts Center
215 S. College Hill Drive
To pre-register for this event, contact the Nellie Pederson Library at (254) 675-6495.
Spread the word to your writer friends. I hope I’ll see some of you there.
