Nailing the 4 Essential Pillars of Novel Construction – Talk and Q&A
With C. S. Lakin

Cover of the book 12 Key Pillars of Novel Construction

Smart writers will take the time to learn how to structure strong pillars that will hold up their stories. If these 4 essential pillars are weak, your novel will collapse. This 2-hour slide talk and discussion will go deep into your concept with a kicker, protagonist with a goal, conflict with high stakes, and theme with a heart. At the end of this session you will thoroughly understand how to build your corner pillars and be given worksheets to help you brainstorm and solidify these essential elements of novel construction. Attend the afternoon session if you’re ready to workshop your pillars!
