Event description

Description

This is a class co-sponsored by MI and San Francisco Writers Conference/San Francisco Writers Foundation.

In this afternoon session, we’ll dig deep into your four pillars, helping you brainstorm your ideas in small group critique sessions along with instructor feedback. You’ll perfect your four worksheets so that you can confidently dive into writing your novel, knowing that your concept and premise are faultless, your protagonist has a terrific compelling goal, your conflict and high stakes are riveting and believable, and your theme is zinging with heart. Don’t waste time writing a novel with weak pillars. Build a strong story—no more guesswork! Be sure to bring your ideas and laptop or notepad and be ready to work!

C. S. Lakin is the author of twenty novels of various genres, a freelance copyeditor and writing coach, an award-winning blogger at Live Write Thrive, and the fiction track director at the San Francisco Writers’ Conference. She teaches workshops and plotting boot camps around the US and critiques more than two hundred manuscripts a year. Her Writer’s Toolbox series of writing craft books provides intense instruction on all aspects of novel writing. Read about C. S. Lakin at her blog and check out her books on her Amazon Author Page.
