Workshop Your 4 Essential Pillars of Novel Construction
With C. S. Lakin

Cover of the book 12 Key Pillars of Novel Construction

In this afternoon session, we'll dig deep into your four pillars, helping you brainstorm your ideas in small group critique sessions along with instructor feedback. You'll perfect your four worksheets so that you can confidently dive into writing your novel, knowing that your concept and premise are faultless, your protagonist has a terrific compelling goal, your conflict and high stakes are riveting and believable, and your theme is zinging with heart. Don't waste time writing a novel with weak pillars. Build a strong story--no more guesswork! Be sure to bring your ideas and laptop or notepad and be ready to work!
