If you are local, I wanted to let you know that this Saturday (tomorrow!) I am speaking at the public library in town, Samuel's Public Library to the Teen Creative Writing Club. Note: The talk will be at 11 AM, not at 2 PM as I had previously thought! (So if you know anyone who was going, be sure to tell them about the time change!) Happy feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
I'll be speaking on "Which Comes First: The Plot or the Characters?" trying to answer a common dilemma for writers, and also sharing how I learned to structure plot, detail characters, and most importantly, create a unifying premise for a story.
