Proposed Workshop Title WORLD-WEAVING: KEEP THE DATA, AVOID THE DUMP

Workshop Duration 4 weeks
Workshop Details Characters and their stories require the construction of “worlds,” from the character’s physical location (known or invented), to the character’s occupation, to the character’s social, political, and economic structure…and more. For many writers, this mean compiling pages of detailed and fascinating facts that often get dumped into the storyline—and onto the reader—like a load of soggy laundry and with about the same effect: Readers get bored and the story flops to a halt.

But wait! Instead of the dump, do the weave. In this World-Weaving workshop, award-winning author Linnea Sinclair will show you how to seamlessly integrate your beloved research into your story and make it feel real, immediate and exciting.
