Wendy Delaney -- Conflict–It’s Not Exclusive to Our Characters
Tuesday, November 8, 2016, 7pm <--dinner starts at 5pm
Angelo's Restaurant, 1830 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005, 425.883.2777
Conflict is a critical component in genre fiction. Combined with our characters’ goals and motivations, conflict fuels our stories. It gives our stories legs to carry us through to our characters’ happy endings. Then, why do we often hear, when the writer has such a story, that she couldn’t get past chapter three? Or, she got stuck and never finished it.
In this interactive workshop, learn how to build a solid foundation of conflict for your characters while fueling your creativity. And if you’re stuck, learn how to get unstuck!

- Do not feel obligated to buy dinner at the restaurant. However, since the restaurant is giving us the space for free, it would be nice of us to have dinner there when feasible (no pressure though; we know some folks don't have the time or have budgets to stick to).
- The restaurant can accommodate gluten-free or other special dietary requests; just ask the server.
- If you can't make it at 5:00 for dinner, you can still order dinner if you get there later; just please be there to place your order by 6:40ish so that we don't interrupt our speaker.
We'd love to see you there! :)
