It's here, guys! Today's workshop is finally here! Can you believe it! I hope you have lots of questions to ask because our agents are standing by to try their best and answer your inquiries! They will be popping in all day to check out your questions and to cheer you fabulous writers on to better writing!
Inquiring minds want to know, right? So now is your chance.
During the day, I will be updating the blog with awesome AGENT and EDITOR INSIDER news.
Oh, and you might want to know I'll be handing out gifts and door prizes and small tokens of appreciation to those who follow my blog, are participating in the workshop, or simply read Ink in the Book quietly in the shadows:)
Our newest agent to participate is....wait. I think I may play a little game! Once our secret agent has commented on a question, I'll let the cat out of the bag! Oh secret Santa, where are you???
For those wondering about the Agent gifts, it's not right to tell a person what their gift is BEFORE they open it, so I'm not telling WHAT the gifts are just yet. But I totally promise you, you will LOVE these gifts. There's a system already set in place- Random dot Org - for those visiting today, so as the system kicks in and winners are chosen, I'll be updating the gifts and who won them throughout the day. Be sure and check back often! If not, everything will be posted still tomorrow, so you can check back then to see if you received a gift.
Feel free to leave a question. Some beautiful and talented Agent is waiting to answer.
And agents, please feel free to comment on any question.
Merry Christmas, beautiful guys and dolls!
So, we are talking about sagging middles and how to fix them. First thing is this: how's the opposition in your novel? Is the bad guy bad enough? Is he or she believable? Remember, I asked about impending death in the last session. So let's think about death of the MC for a minute.
Does the antagonist have the ability to physically kill your you MC? Make sure the scenes with impending death are written vividly and with excitement.
Does the bad guy have the ability and power to take down your MC, as in a corrupt boss, policeman or colleague who hates her? Be sly and sneaky or just pure evil with these intentions. Make the readers want to turn the page and find out how the evil plan is working.
Does the villain want to emotionally crush you MC? Write concise, emotionally charged scenes where your MC is on the verge of a break down. And make us cry. And ultimately care about him.
More late, gator!
No gifts yet. Where are you agents? It's coffee time!
