Published author Jaye Wells will compare the process of writing a novel to the classic three-act structure of a story/hero's journey.
- Act 1 focuses on “The Setup,” a discussion of different methods of preparing an idea to get ready to write.
- Act 2 focuses on “Rising Action and Obstacles,” getting that draft written.
- Act 3 covers “The Resolution,” or revisions, and includes her “Top Ten List of Stupid Writer Tricks” to make a manuscript shine.
About the Presenter:
After several years as a magazine editor and freelance writer, Jaye Wells finally decided to leave the facts behind and make up her own reality. Her overactive imagination and life-long fascination with the arcane and freakish blended nicely with this new career path. Her Sabina Kane urban fantasy series is a blend of dark themes, grave stakes and wicked humor. Jaye lives in Texas with her saintly husband and devilish son. Her work is represented by Rebecca Strauss of McIntosh & Otis.
