Sometimes, in our novel, we need to transition forward or backwards in time.
It may be years, months, weeks, or only hours.
This presentation will discuss when and why to use time shifts in our work,
and provide methods to achieve those shifts with ease.

with our character and our story.

This presentation offers ways to remove the distance and make your writing more dynamic.

Learn how to identify what makes a critique group good, bad, or ugly.
Depending on the group and the time available, this presentation can be expanded to offer samples and insights into the “how” of giving a critique.

This presentation offers ways to use setting to create depth to your characters and the conflicts in your novel.
