How to Begin: A Writing Workshop with Rebecca Davis
You probably find that you have some time on your hands. You crave to start a writing project that’s been living in your head for a while. But there may be a problem: do you know how to begin? How much research should you do before you write? How do you know if your story-line will work? What if your characters are flat and dull?
Winston-Salem author Rebecca Davis is here to help. In this talk, she will discuss how to begin your short or long fiction. To get you on your way to writing that first page, we will touch on the basics of plot structure, dynamic characterization, and other elements of crafting compelling fiction. We will journey from initial concept through researching and all the way to drafting a captivating beginning.
