Plotting Made Easy – Part II: Story Secrets Revealed with Diana Stout

In this hands-on story workshop, you'll fill in three different worksheets, which then funnel into the scenes and the synopsis you created in the June Part I Session. Whether you were at the Part I meeting or not, Part II works independently for pantsers and plotters alike. Bring a story you're struggling with, one you've been wanting to start, or the one you worked on in June's Part I meeting.  (For those not at the June meeting, those handouts will be provided with a brief explanation of their use) and be prepared to see lots of "aha" moments around the room!!!  If you attended the meeting in June, bring your notes and handouts  because this workshop is a continuation of that meeting. Where the June meeting focused on plot, this meeting focuses on character; and as we all know: character and plot must become one, otherwise it isn't a strong story.

**NOTE: These documents will not be available online as they are part of a larger project.
