Gearing up for bootcamp!
Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

One last reminder! Sign up today!

For those who don’t know, my sister and I co-founded a website for writers called Rose’s Colored Glasses. From that site, we run a critique group and provide workshops—some free and some for pay (hey, teaching is work!). In January, we will be leading a month-long plotting bootcamp. How’s our workshop different from every other one out there? We provide feedback and brainstorming every step of the way. We are so good at it that we have many authors return again and again for help with their new Works-in-Progress.

Here’s a description of the class. January is a great time to take on a new challenge and a new book. Join us if you can!

Your DIs (Drill Instructors): Elle James and Delilah Devlin

Dates: January 4—January 30, 2010

Cost: $35.00—cheap, considering everything you get!

What you can look forward to during Plotting Bootcamp?

Learn a methodical approach to harness your creativity in order to produce an in-depth plot for your next novel! Sound scary? It is-when you’re staring at an empty page without a compass and a map to guide you through the novelistic jungle. Your DIs will lead you through four weeks of activities that will help strengthen your abilities to: capture the conflicts, the major plot line and subplots; deepen your knowledge of your characters; and conceive of and develop an in-depth, by-chapter description of your book. Elle and Delilah will accomplish this with weekly lessons, bi-weekly chats and daily online communication. Be ready for bivouac!

Okay, that’s the end of my promo. The bootcamp is intense and fun. And you will learn something new or reinforce knowledge you already have! Guaranteed!

Our mom drew the picture for our site, morphing my sister and I into “Rose”.

    Wesley! Which one? I completed edits of Bad, Bad Girlfriend day before yesterday. Finished up the last pages of FWD&J. Today, I am working on a free read for Samhain’s Valentine series and a rewrite of an old medieval short story to stretch it to “Quickie” length for Ellora’s Cave. I completed notes on a rough outline for a fairy tale based on the story of Ondine day before. AND I will start rewrites on a contemporary erotic proposal for a NY house tomorrow. As you can see my WADD (Writer’s ADD) affliction is in full force.
