The Nice Girl's Guide to Creating Conflict
with Sally Kilpatrick
September 9 - 20th, 2019
FREE for all members and those who join RWF before the workshop.
Do your manuscripts get comments like “your story is too quiet” or “you have too much external conflict”? Do you find it hard to put your characters in sticky situations? Sally Kilpatrick relays her own journey to creating conflict even when, in real life, she prefers to run away. Starting with the tried and true concept of GMC, she’ll expand upon the concept and guide you through adding internal conflict and other strategies for making sure that your story has layers.
Sally has a handout to simplify the process of evaluating your characters’ GMC, and the class will also run through examples to better learn how to strengthen your story. She can’t write your story — heck, she’s supposed to be writing one of her own — but she’ll happily share all of her tools with you so we can all be bad girls together.
