#NewYear Resolution: Polish Your Novel for #NaNoEdMo

Did you do NaNoWriMo? Do your New Year’s resolutions include finishing or editing a novel? I’ll be teaching Advanced Plotting: Keep Those Pages Turning starting January 9, 2017.

ADVANCED PLOTTING: Keep Those Pages Turning by Chris Eboch
START DATE: Monday, January 9, 2017
DURATION: 8 weeks (four classes)
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Many books and workshops teach the basics of plotting: conflict, complications, and climax. Now learn advanced techniques that will make a decent plot dynamic. Start with a “grab you by the throat” opening to pull readers into the story. Learn how to pack the plot full by complicating your complications. Control your pacing through sentence and paragraph length. And finally, cliffhanger chapter endings ensure late-night reading under the covers. Learn techniques to make any story or book better. Novelists will benefit from these insights, whether they are just starting out or have years of experience.

Here’s what people have said about my previous workshops:

“Chris had a very detailed and extensive lecture with many great tips.” ~ Paula Yoo

“Chris is hands-down one of the best author-speakers we’ve ever had. The comments on her were full of grateful praise.” ~ Robin Koontz, SCBWI Oregon retreat leader
