Building a Book with Good Bones, with Randy Susan Meyers

Are you in the morass of meandering, researching, and sketching your novel but unable to get a firm hold? For those who are beginning a book (or have begun many a book, but never finished), this seminar will provide a working outline for building the framework using the “how do you eat an elephant” approach: one bite at a time. Participants will, step-by-step, move from initial idea to outline. Seminar participants come prepared with their story idea(s), index cards, pens, highlighters, pens and pencils (with eraser!) By the end of the morning, participants will walk out having a skeleton on which to build their novel. 

Saturday, February 26, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
