Here’s the short write up of my workshop:
WRITING CRAFT WORKSHOP:
The Shape of the Thing
Ron Heacock & Karen Walasek
Writers are told not to edit until they complete the first draft, because it is impossible to know the shape of your work (whether a novel, short story, memoir, etc). But when we are in the fit of the creative chaos, writers need some sort of guidance. In this workshop we will discuss and practice using structural mapping techniques that help keep the story moving through to the completion of your draft and even to the completion of your manuscript.
