Learn how to write as you go and explore your work-in-progress using an organic approach with writer Mark Stevens.
Speaker: Mark Stevens
Do you need to plot out every scene before you write the first sentence of the first chapter? Are you a "plotter" who needs to know every moment in your novel before you start writing? Learn how to write as you go — and explore your work-in-progress using the organic approach: starting with a blank page. It’s not as scary as it sounds. Learn what you need to know about your characters. Think of new ways to develop and enhance conflict and keep jeopardy rolling. Warning: there will be surprises along the way.
Mark Stevens has published three Colorado-based mysteries, Antler Dust (2007), Buried by the Roan (2011) and Trapline (2014). Buried by the Roan was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award in 2012. The fourth book in the Allison Coil Mystery Series, Lake of Fire, will be published in September 2015.
