April 23, 2016: Amylynn Bright, Kellie Hazell & Vicky Loebel

Do You Want to Write a Review?

So, you want to write a review? Or you feel like you should write a review. Or maybe you just want to support your fellow writers. Maybe you read something that was so enjoyable, life altering, paradigm shifting, that you simply must tell strangers about it. You’re saying you can write a book, but a book report scares the bejesus out of you. Amylynn will walk us through the basics. We’ll look at writing a few reviews of well known books and how to hit the highlights. We’ll have fun.

The Tarot-Designed Plot Bridge

In February, Vicky Loebel shared her plotting techniques to streamline the drafting process for the pantsers among us. In March, Kellie Hazell outlined how to use tarot decks and other cards and kits to brainstorm our way through writing. Now Vicky & Kellie will combine their toolkits to demonstrate how to build your plot bridge using tarot cards. Come prepared to participate with your big brainstorming and outlining questions!

About Vicky Loebel & Kellie Hazell

Vicky & Kellie have endured each others’ company for almost as long as the Saguaro Romance Writers have been around, including serving together on the SRW Board of Directors not once, not twice, but three times – and volunteering together in other ways more than either can recall. Over the years, they took breaks from chapter activities by brainstorming plot snarls, character foibles, and revision speed traps using any card deck they could find and all manner of plotting techniques. They have even been known to watch movies such as The Fifth Element together as an exercise to analyze story structure. Ply them with enough allergen-free chocolate and bourbon, and they may even share the story analysis experiment that was their viewing of Upstream Color.Vicky LoebelKellie Hazell
