Yosemite Romance Writers is proud to present their online workshop for November.

Date: 11/02/10 To 11/26/2010

Workshop title: Story Aerobics: Shaping Up Sagging Middles

Instructor: Raquel Rodriguez

After a brilliant start, does your story slow down and loose it's sparkle? Do your characters run out of things to say? Too early in the story for a love scene, and you don't have a dead body to thrown in?

Learn how to confront these stumbling blocks that cause your problem scenes with a few simple steps and exercises. Learn to define the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the real situation. Recognize how your story choices can help strengthen motivation, or change the direction for more realistic conflicts. Learn how not to get stuck on minor characters or problematic scenes, and put your time into pages that will move your plot forward. Get to the heart of the difficulty and extrapolate the answer to get your scene flowing again to engage your reader.

Areas covered:

- Enhance your tension

- Up the stakes

- Add realistic conflict

- Cutting "deadwood" to move your story forward
