Think of your brain as a diorama, a set to dress and fill with drama, then let the characters walk in. There is a lot of debate about whether plot or character-driven fiction is the most satisfying to write or to read. The same can be said of any art form. For sure, dancers need to master technique as do musicians or painters, before they can effectively improvise. Beautiful lift-off happens when technique or plot is left behind and the muse takes over. That is when characters live in the writer’s head and develop naturally and when readers suspend disbelief. In this workshop, writers will be asked to improvise, get into character and deliver from the heart to the brain, where words assemble.
