I have lots happening in the writing part of my world at the moment and I’m hoping to have some good news to share but at the moment, it’s a secret.
And as it happens, I’m also starting a Savvy Authors writing course today, entitled ”Shhh… Your Character Has a Secret.”
I love books about secrets – they give that touch of mystery that I love to read in a romance – and I have sketchy ideas for my next two books about characters with secrets, so can’t wait to get started in this course.
I haven’t done a Savvy Authors course before but have heard only good.
Here’s the spiel for the one I’m about to start:
|Sshhh… Your Character Has A Secret||http://api.tweetmeme.com/button.js?url=http%3A//www.savvyauthors.com/vb/showevent.php%3Feventid%3D894&style=compact&source=SavvyAuthors&o=http%3A//www.savvyauthors.com/vb/content.php&b=1|
Instructor: Sue Viders and Becky Martinez. Secrets are a staple in fiction. Just about any great leading character has some sort of secret he/she does not want the world to know. How can you come up with a secret for your hero or heroine and how can you use that secret to build conflict? Join two published authors and teachers for a week-long class who will introduce you to the power of secrets—from big to small—from old to new—and who will show you how using secrets can build tension, provide conflict and make your character much more believable.
So what about you? Have you done a fabulous writing course lately that you’d recommend to other writers?
