I’ve been hosting a chat on Zoom with several Facebook friends for the last few months.
The basic format is me leading discussion to answer participant questions related to the writing process and/or editing. In past chats, we’ve discussed:
- different narrative points of view
- how to show different aspects of characterization
- how to describe setting but not slow the plot
- how to build genuine tension
- and many other topics.
I have also shared ways to self-edit, and defined and demonstrated the different types of editing.
The next chat is currently scheduled for December 26, 2 pm Eastern Daylight Time (New York, US). RSVP on Facebook if you’d like to join.
If there’s a lot of interest (leave a comment) from people not on Facebook, I can set up a different chat for another day/time.
Happy holidays, everyone!
