The March Workshop was:
Creating a compelling plot is key to any successful novel, but what is the secret to a plot that makes sense and pacing which pulls a reader to the next page? USA Today and NY Times bestseller Caridad Pineiro will help you learn the secrets behind the Hero’s Journey and how you can use this helpful tool to make your plot and pacing zing! Caridad will be discussing the history behind this plotting technique as well as the basic steps in the Hero’s Journey. To allow her fellow writers to better understand the technique, Caridad will be using familiar movies to highlight the various steps in the Hero’s Journey. Caridad recommends that you take a moment and watch Officer and a Gentleman to help you fully appreciate the workshop.
