Ane Mulligan, the ACFW Zone Director, and an accomplished author herself, will be visiting us via Skype on Saturday, April 16. She'll be teaching on Goal, Motivation, and Conflict, with an emphasis on Motivation.
If you're like me, and sometimes find your characters randomly wandering from page to page without a clear focus of why they're there or what they're doing, this will be a worthwhile lesson!
We're also starting a critique group. If you'd like to have a page or two of your current WIP critiqued, send it to the group via email no later by April 9. We'll meet for critiques from 9:30-10 a.m., like Sunday school!
If you are unable to join us at the Artful Cup in Grand Junction, you are welcome to Skype in and participate! Don't you love technology? Email your Skype address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll add you to the session (you'll need to accept a request first!). Let me know if you have any questions. I'm a Skype newbie, but I'll try to get you an answer!
And one more bit of news, we will be changing our monthly meeting schedule to the fourth Saturday beginning in May. We'll have another virtual guest speaker in May, too!
I hope to see you on April 16th!
