*February 1 AND February 4: The Original Idea—The Core of Writing and
Selling Your Book and Conflict-The Fuel of Your Story with Bob Mayer
*Blurb:* Can you say what your book is about in 25 words of less? This is essential to both writing a tight book and then selling it. We’ll discuss ways to find and state your original idea so that you stay on course while writing the book and with which you can excite those you tell it to when trying to sell it. *After the formal presentation, participants will get the opportunity to present their idea down and have it discussed*. We’ll find out what you really meant to write and the level of interest it generates. All will profit, not just the person whose idea is discussed, as this workshop will show you how to focus your creative energies.
Conflict drives your story. Not only must conflict escalate throughout the entire novel, every single scene must have conflict in it. The Conflict Box is an effective technique for focusing your story on the protagonist,
antagonist, their goals and finding out if you have the necessary conflict lock.
*This is a two-day workshop*.
