Storyboarding to Enhance Your Plot with USA Today Bestselling Author Megan Ryder
April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Have you heard the saying – a picture is worth a thousand words? A plot board, or story board, is a visual representation of your book. It’s a visual view of your book, a quick overview, of the flow of your story. It allows you to quickly see an overview of your book without having to read paragraphs in a synopsis or notes in a notebook. It also facilitates plot brainstorming and helps keep you writing during the process.
In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to set up your storyboard for brainstorming, writing and revising your manuscript.
While this workshop assumes plotting knowledge, it does provide guidance on basic plot and story structure and provides guidance for writers of all levels to find ways to plot their stories and revise their stories using a visual board approach. It discusses turning points, elements of plot, internal and external arcs and processes for plotting stories. It is not a detailed plotting workshop however and can be modified for any plot method that a writer chooses to employ.
