BRAIDING YOUR STORY WITH LAURIE SCHNEBLY CAMPBELL

Weaving the different strands and levels of your story is trickier than making a simple braid, but the idea is the same — you need to give equal attention to every separate element that’s part of the finished creation. Since your readers want a certain balance between factors that aren’t always equally important, this 2.5-hour workshop shows how to:

* Build a braid strong enough to support your entire story

* Maintain the balance of tension among each of your characters

* Make sure the plot twists don’t unravel in later chapters

* Enrich the three-way blend with individual “extras”

* Incorporate as much action or emotion as your readers expect

* Keep your plot from overshadowing the characters, or vice versa

* Tie off the braid for a satisfying conclusion

Laurie Schnebly Campbell

Laurie Schnebly Campbell always loves creating a class, so when a writer asked about “braiding” she was delighted at the chance to explore an untouched subject. Although she enjoyed braiding her own books, including one that beat out Nora Roberts for “Best Special Edition of the Year,” she enjoys teaching even more. That’s why her bookshelf now contains 47 debut novels created during her workshops.
