What to Expect

Four intense days focused on mastering plotting, starting on April 27th.

For those who arrive by April 26th, an evening informal get-together in historic downtown Port Townsend.

One-on-one sessions with me to dig into your individual plot structure.

A downloadable set of templates to help you put the lessons to work right away in your own stories!

Plenty of opportunity to work individually on your plots, to write, or to use a break to see the sights.

This workshop is tailor-made for writers who are serious about getting and staying published, as well as improving their understanding of what plotting means.

Come prepared to work hard! The workshop will be very focused and intense, but also exhilarating.

See what attendees are saying about what they gained from previous Live Power Plotting Workshops:

As a published author I need to plot stories quickly and efficiently. The Break into Fiction program not only helps me outline my books before I start writing, but also gives me resources to turn to when I get stuck in the dreaded middle. Finally, I have the tools I need to push through episodes of writer’s block. I recommend Break into Fiction for published and unpublished authors who want to write page-turning, character- and conflict-driven stories.

~~ Melinda Leigh, multi-published RS author

I want to thank you for the dedication and quality that you put into this workshop/retreat. As a beginner writer, I really appreciate that you embraced those at my level as well as more experienced writers. After only 2 hours on the first day, my writing colleague and friend thanked me heartily for encouraging her to attend the workshop. I will sing your praises and direct my other writing colleagues to your retreat.

~~ Elaine Gray, pre-published writer

I did, indeed, plot a novel in two days. I didn’t really believe that would happen.

~~ Kaye George, multi-published Mystery author

I used to think I was good at plotting — but this past (retreat) weekend made me realize I’ve been guilty of a more complicated version of the ‘one damned thing after another’ plot. I’m stunned at how well an entire story arc came together in just two days. I’m eager, now, to apply the templates to the books I’ve been revising for — mm — ever, I think. I suspect I’ll discover I’ve been revising the wrong bits for the wrong reasons all this time.

~~ Marcella Burnard, multi-published Sci-Fi/Fantasy author
