“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” So said Ernest Hemingway. Sometimes the pain and misery of writing comes from not knowing enough about the stories we’re trying to tell. Terry Fallis will explore the benefits and challenges of outlining your novel before writing it. An inveterate planner, he’ll walk the participants through his own approach to outlining, showing examples and explaining how his process has evolved over the course of seven novels. Time permitting, there may be a couple of workshop exercises to bring the power of outlining to life, and plenty of discussion.
