The Thrill of Rewriting & Bringing the Heat
More than simply being the right price, self-editing (with the right techniques) separates true writers from dabblers. It can make your writing more accessible to others, save time, and drastically improve your craft. Peggy Lang is a developmental editor/book doctor/line editor/ghost co-author who has worked on everything from romantic adventure (Silhouette) to chick lit to scientific/historical non-fiction to an award-winning political memoir. Peggy will talk about her spell-binding literary techniques together with a guide to eliminating spell-breakers.
Whether you are writing fiction or personal narrative, the one single most important indispensable element in your writing is conflict, of course. Can you build it like a fire? Can you wield it like a blade? Tease with it like a feather? Does it lead your readers to share your passion for your story? Discover the tools to do all this and learn how to fan the flames and hone the heat.
