Save the Cat!
Connie Weidel will share Blake Snyder's Save the Cat! storytelling methodology (used for writing screenplays) and show how it can be applied to fiction writing. Revealing the 15 "beats" (plot points) that comprise a successful story--from the opening image to the finale will help a novelist sort out a plot that will work to engage the reader and sell the book.
About 20 years ago, I decided to get more serious about my writing hobby and began writing novels. Then 4 years ago, I took a screenwriting class, in hopes it would help me plot my novels. I never went back. I have completed 4 screenplays to date and have placed in several contests and film festivals.
