October 24 – member, Crystal Caudill – Plotting 101 – Creating a Story Readers Can’t Put Down – Understanding story structure is a crucial skill for every author. Even pansters must adhere to the age-old structure if they hope to be published. Yet, creating a story without a muddled middle or an anticlimactic ending takes diligent work and a thorough understanding of structure. This interactive workshop uses M&Ms to break down and apply the four-act structure to story creation. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of story structure and a loosely plotted story.
