Topic: Bleeding on the Page: Writing Emotion Presented by Laura Drake
One of the most important tools in a Writer’s toolbox is the ability express true emotion on the page. Emotion is the glue that binds a reader to your characters and to you, as an author. Laura Drake will explain the tools you’ll need to achieve and refine this skill, including pacing, visceral responses, and expanding and contracting time. She’ll illustrate their use by breaking down examples from Best Selling author’s novels. Whether you’re new at this, or skilled, we hope you’ll join us. Romance writers can’t afford to let their tools get rusty!
