Although I’ve written two nonfiction books, I’ve always wanted to write fiction.
I love reading fiction and often come up with ideas for sharing stories from my childhood and the beauty of growing upÂ with a large family in a small town.
Last year I took a six weekÂ online class titled “Writing Fiction Like a Pro.” Â I loved it! I took one ofÂ the story ideas I’ve tossed around in my head for many years. AfterÂ learning some cool techniques, it flowed into a three-act play structure and then I boiled it down to a raw outline form. I was on my way!
Now I’m ready to take it to the next level.
This weekend I’ll be headed to the Inland Northwest Story Crafters Retreat in Spokane.
I amÂ ready to igniteÂ my career as a novelist!
Susan May Warren is teaching at the 2014 My Book Therapy Storycrafterâ€™s Retreat.
I’m showing upÂ with an idea â€“ and I hope toÂ leave with a story and everythingÂ I need toÂ igniteÂ my journey to publication.
This is a private, intensive retreat with only 16 participants.
It is time to invest in my writing dreams.
I am beside myself excited!
It is a story of love and forgiveness. I related to so many of the rich and raw characters.
It takes place in the small lakeside town of Deep Haven. I found myself rooting for each character in the Christiansen family as they struggled with relatable issues of grief, anger and unforgiveness.
With each chapter came a new twist in the developing romantic relationshipsÂ fromÂ this beautiful little town in northern Minnesota.
I can’t wait to start another one of Susan’s many novels and learn from her talented writing style. I hope you’ll check out some of her books.
Here is a link to the bibliography of her many books. http://www.susanmaywarren.com/novels/bibliography/
I hope you’ll come back and share some ideas with me as I formulate the story lines for the series I have in mind.
Have you ever wanted to write a novel?
If so, why not now?
Tell me how I can encourage you in your writing.
Bless you with ideas that flow.
