Elements of Desire: What Your Protagonist Wants, Needs, and Doesn’t Even Know She is Missing
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Romance novels have given a whole different connotation to the word “desire,” but desire in literature doesn’t have anything to do with intimate relationships or lust. Without it, there is no character growth, no forward movement of plot, no obstacles to be overcome. In this workshop, we’ll do hands-on exercises to learn what the three prongs of desire are, why they are crucial to every story, and how to incorporate them into your manuscripts and illustrations. Yes, even a picture book must have desire!
