Connecting Character & Plot in Strong Stories

The inclusion of strong, multi-dimensional characters who grow and change over the course of the story is just as important in a good story as plot or idea. But when your characters and your plot are strongly connected, you have a story that works every time! Come join me to talk about finding the synergy between these two important elements of your story. There will be time for some Q&A!

 

 

Being Creative When the World is a Mess

2020 has been a difficult year for many creative types–but creativity can be a struggle even when there isn’t a global pandemic!

All materials can be sourced on the island, and are inexpensive. Feel free to ask questions as we walk you through the project. Hope to see you there.

 

Bad FanFiction PG 13

Jeff Bushnik

We all love our fandoms. Some of us so much so that we decide to create our own stories in them.
This is the story of the stories that shouldn’t be.
The cringe-inducing purple prose, the shudderingly awful plot, the cardboard-cutout characters that are all the more nauseating because we know that- surprise! -it’s really just the author inserting themselves into their own fantasy.
I find the worst examples I can, trim the fat, and serve up a coarse course of semi-illiterature to you.
