Event description
Join Senior Editor Elena Hartwell Taylor as she discusses how to stress characters but balance a writer's life.

About this event

Accessibility: Live, auto-transcription will be available. For ASL interpretation or other accommodation requests, please email andrea@allegoryediting.com

Workshop Description: Suffering for your writing is neither necessary nor healthy. But staying motivated can be hard—especially during the challenges of the last two years. Simultaneously, we want our characters to overcome big challenges and face hardships, even when we want our own lives to be smooth sailing.

Join Allegory Senior Editor Elena Hartwell Taylor as she discusses ways to stay motivated, balance writing, work, and life, and create reasonable goals, along with applying those same concepts to your characters, in reverse, writing them out of balance, with big obstacles to overcome.

Presenter Bio: In addition to working as a developmental editor and writing coach, Elena is a published author. Her most recent novel, All We Buried, appears under the name Elena Taylor. The Eddie Shoes Mystery Series appears under Elena Hartwell. Prior to writing novels, Elena worked extensively in the theater as a playwright, director, educator, and designer. She has taught writing and theatre courses at the college/university level for more than twenty years. She holds a PhD in dramatic theory and criticism, a Masters of Education with an emphasis in teaching theatre, and a BA in Mass Media Communications. For more information about Elena, you can visit her website and read her blog about authors, new books, and the writing process.

Event Info: In addition to the live and interactive event, this event will also be recorded and made available to participants.
