HOW TO PLOT A STORY
Many writers find that when they sit down to write, their initial idea for a story turns out too vague, underdeveloped, or otherwise riddled with problems. It is easy to get lost at this point. In this session, Zachary Lazar, author of five books, will talk about how to build a satisfying plot through the use of scenes, complications, and dramatic escalation. Most of the talk will be practical and illustrated with concrete examples. We will then discuss our own challenges in creating plots, with plenty of time for Q and A.
