It's Getting Closer...and We Can't Wait! Come Learn from John Dufresne

Florida Heritage Book Festival - St. Augustine, Florida - Book Sales - Workshops

Get ready for the Florida Heritage Book Festival and Writer's Conference happening late September 2014. This is a super chance for literary lovers - both authors and readers. There will be tons of books for sale, plenty of educational opportunities, and the privilege to visit the one and only, beautiful Flagler College. 

Being that JLB Creatives Publishing will be an active part of the festival, we'll be listing a festival "nugget" from the line-up every Tuesday and Friday right here on the blog.

John Dufresne –"Narrative Transport: Letting the Plot Guide the Writing of Your Story"

Plot: A central character wants something, goes after it despite opposition, and as a result of a struggle, either wins or loses. Let’s take our definition of plot as a starting point and see how we might let the necessary plot do our thinking for us and lead us, quite naturally, to considerations of characterization, theme, tone, point of view, setting, and so on. This is how you, as a writer, might go ahead and think with your plot and begin composing your story, and how you might, in so doing, create the emotional and intellectual experience your reader hopes for.   Gamache-Koger Theater
