Your Writing's Curb Appeal

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

In today's buyer's market, anything you can do to enhance your

manuscript's appeal puts you one step ahead of everyone else trying

to

sell. By taking a look at your writing with a fresh eye, you'll

discover

ways to make the most of your writing's appearance, readability, and

impact. The Grammar Divas share episodes of popular writing improvement

shows such as Dream Words, This Old Sentence, Extreme Makeover:

Paragraph Edition, Trading Spaces, Fun Shui, and Designed to Sell. You

leave the workshop with decorating ideas, remodeling projects, and prose

improvements that can make your manuscript appealing to a potential

buyer… an editor!

INSTRUCTOR BIOS

Grammar wasn't Annie Oortman's first love (actually, it was a cute boy

in her second-grade class named Henry Talley) or even her second

(avoiding barn work). However, after getting an A for content but an F

for readability on a third-grade book report, she learned having great

ideas was one thing, communicating them well on paper another.

Annie became a disciple of the church of Proper Grammar and

card-carrying member of The Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar

(www.spogg.org <http://www.spogg.org/> ). Nowadays, she diagrams

sentences for fun (yes, for fun), corrects her

children when they say "I did good on the test" (I did well.), and

argues with fellow grammar devotees on the acceptability of ending a

sentence with a preposition (don't do it).

BTW, Annie is hoping to see her name on the cover of a fiction novel

soon... very soon. (And, if you're wondering, Henry Talley never

even

noticed Annie as he had a mad crush on blonde-haired, blue-eyed Libby

Boxler.)

Darlene Buchholz fell in love in the first grade with a boy named Neil.

He shared his crackers and milk at recess after someone took her snack

and never got caught. She's loved romance and intrigue ever since.

By

the third grade, she discovered Nancy Drew mysteries and developed a

great passion for perky heroines who drove convertibles (proof they were

in charge of their own lives). She wrote her own one-hundred-page

mysteries, giving the heroine a much better hero than wimpy Ned

Nickerson, who seemed more fashion accessory than hero. What woman

wouldn't prefer a cowboy or a cop named…well, Neil, of course?

Darlene never thought of grammar as a challenge. It was, instead, a tool

to help her express the ideas she felt passionate about. She served as a

peer mentor in junior high and high school. Becoming a high school

English teacher was a natural for Darlene. She loved sharing ideas

expressed in great literature and exposition.

Now, family raised, Darlene has decided to write stories again. She

writes romantic suspense, and sometimes her heroines drive trucks rather

than convertibles. Her heroes are still cowboys and cops. She hopes to

publish soon.

BTW… Darlene disagrees with Annie about the acceptability of ending

a

sentence with a preposition. Yes, you can! No one, absolutely no one,

including Annie, says: On what did you step? Not in casual conversation

and not in situations where you'd like to impress the committee in

charge of awarding you a grant or a fellowship. We all say: What did you

step on?

February 28, 2011 through March 27, 2011

http://www.romance-ffp.com/event.cfm?EventID=269

Coming up with an idea for a book is never easy, but plotting that novel

once you have an idea or perfect character can be a real mystery. The

Plotting Wheel can help! Join two seasoned writers who have developed a new,

logical way to figure out how to plot that next book. New writers looking to

take the next step and published authors seeking a new method to plot will

find this four-week class beneficial. From two of the co-authors of the

book, Ten Steps to Creating Memorable Characters, the Plotting Wheel can

help you with your next book.

Need some help with your plot? Have an interesting story in your head but no

idea where to go next? The Plotting Wheel may hold the answer. No matter

what method of plotting a writer uses, there are certain elements that need

to go into any well told story. This class introduces the various elements

that make up the spokes of "The Plotting Wheel" and shows how to use those

spokes to move your story along into a well-developed plot.

The Plotting Wheel can help the writer make certain they’re headed in the

right direction with their plot and that the story is moving forward through

meaningful action, building tension and providing good pacing. The Plotting

Wheel can help get a story off to a good beginning, work to prop up a

sagging middle and provide assistance to insure a satisfying climax and

conclusion.

The class runs for four weeks and each lecture includes exercises on the

various spokes in the Plotting Wheel. Both Becky and Sue individually

critique completed exercises and answer questions and provide ideas for

improving your work.
