Monday Mentionables: Upcoming Writers' Workshops

This coming Wednesday, I'm giving two writing workshops at the Phillips Free Library in Homer, NY:

1:00 - 3:00 pm Romance Writing for Teens

5:30 - 8:00 pm Composing Sweet Confections (for adults)

In both workshops, I'll be focusing on the following, using some well-known romances as well as a few of my own:

~Elements of a romance
~Creating chemistry between characters
~First meetings of Hero/Heroine
~Using conflict to enhance/accelerate the romance
~Achieving more with less (explicit description, that is)

All the participants will do some writing and sharing, too. I'm looking forward to it! The workshops are free and open to the public - just contact the library to reserve a space. And if you'd like a copy of my notes/handouts, email me at and I'll send you one. Happy Writing!
