This 2.5-hour interactive workshop with developmental editor Sue Brown-Moore will teach you how to use the Story Snapshot method to consistently write a powerful first draft.
Follow along as Sue deconstructs a hero character journey from the movie The Proposal, then dive into transforming your own work-in-progress through a series of fast-paced working sprints which explore five thought-provoking questions that dig deep into your character’s psyche.
Sue’s method cuts through the monotony and confusion of traditional Goal, Motivation, and Conflict techniques with a madlib-style mini-game that will reveal the unique heart of your story. The Story Snapshot method exposes problems with a story before it’s written, making this technique a powerhouse tool for pantsers and plotters alike.
Every attendee will receive a comprehensive 50+ page workbook that can be reused for every new story draft. So print out your workbook in advance, and be ready to think fast, work hard, and transform your story!
This workshop has three distinct phases that build upon one another and synergize with an author's existing understanding of character-arc mechanics, making the Story Snapshot Method a seamless fit for writers of all experience levels.
