Don't Miss Our July Workshop

In July, Sherry will be conducting her very popular workshop, IN AND OUT—PUTTING CHARACTERS IN CONFLICT, at WritersOnlineClasses.com. This workshop focuses on the art and craft of creating realistic, believable conflict for your character(s), both internal and external, and on weaving those conflicts together in ways that are fresh, exciting, and powerful enough to catch an editor’s eye. We’ll focus on:

Understanding how a character’s core beliefs create conflict
How internal and external conflicts work together
When to hang onto a character’s past and when to let it go
Keeping conflicts realistic
Creating layers of conflict
Why urgency matters in conflict
Applying conflict to each scene you write
Avoiding anticipated and remembered conflict
