Conflict: Why Can't I Put This Book Down?
Dates: February 2-28, 2009
Instructor: C. J. Carmichael
Cost: FREE to FTHRW members; $20.00 for all others
Registration Deadline: January 28, 2009
Have you ever started writing a romance novel with great excitement, only to have the words begin to dry up after the first three or four chapters? Chances are your story is lacking in conflict—and if this is the case, you are not alone. A lack of conflict is one of the main reasons editors reject manuscripts for publication. In this workshop we will examine how conflict is introduced, layered and developed to provide an exciting, page-turning read.
About the Instructor:
Hard to imagine a more glamorous life than being an accountant, isn’t it? Still, CJ Carmichael gave up the thrills of income tax forms and double entry book-keeping when she sold her first book in 1998. She has now written over 25 novels for Harlequin and strongly suggests you look elsewhere for financial planning advice.
