I was invited by the Loudoun County Library System (LCLS) to present a workshop at the Cascades Library in Sterling, VA. I’m pleased to say that it went very well, as evidenced by the fact that LCLS has already invited to give more workshops in the coming year.
As I always do, I make the PDFs of my workshop presentations available online. You can grab this one here (or you can click on the image), as well as on my Media page with my many other workshops.
The full description of my workshop is:
Compelling heroes are the centerpiece of successful stories. They’re not just carried along by the plot—they drive the plot. They demand the reader’s attention and drag them on a journey. If your heroes aren’t doing that, then this is the workshop for you. This group collaborative session will teach you a multi-layered approach to crafting a compelling, memorable hero. During the character-building exercises, you’ll also learn how to build a meaningful character arc for your hero that you can leverage for your story’s plot.
