Libbie Hawker - Take Off Your Pants! Outline Your Books for Better, Faster, Writing
Tuesday, February 21, 2017, 7pm <<--note different day; dinner starts at 5 PM
Angelo's Restaurant, 1830 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005, 425.883.2777
Libbie Hawker explains the benefits and technique of planning a story before you begin to write. She’ll show you how to develop a foolproof character arc and plot, how to pace any book for a can’t-put-down reading experience, and how to ensure that your stories are complete and satisfying without wasting time or words.
Hawker’s outlining technique works no matter what genre you write, and no matter the age of your audience. If you want to improve your writing speed, increase your backlist, and ensure a quality book before you even write the first word, this is the meeting for you.
Take off your pants! It’s time to start outlining.
Libbie Hawker writes historical and literary fiction featuring complex characters and rich details of time and place. She is the author of more than twenty-five novels under three different pen names, as well as the best-selling how-to guide for writers, Take Off Your Pants!: Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing. She lives in the San Juan Islands with her husband and two naughty cats.
We'd love to see you there! :)
- 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.
