Tucson Sisters in Crime
Program for Saturday, June 18, 2022
REVERSE ENGINEERING YOUR MYSTERY PLOT/SUBPLOT
Get hands-on experience learning to expand your pool of suspects, uncover red herrings, and misdirect your reading audience in this interactive workshop.
Laura will deconstruct a classic mystery movie, looking at the character relationships, their motives and the clues they reveal, wittingly or not. When the movie plot is elements are laid bare, she’ll reconstruct it and guide us through an exercise to reverse engineer a new plot in order to “murder” a popular celebrity. Members get to choose a suspect, dig up some dirt, and decide which characters have a motive for murder; at the end, we’ll all get to decide whodunnit, whydunit and howdunnit, using this remarkably entertaining process.
No celebrities, real or imaginary, will be harmed in the course of the workshop.
Laura Hayden, a multi-published author, writes her own books, ghost-writes for celebrities and is a bookseller and small press publisher. She owns and operates Author, Author!, the on-line bookstore specializing in working with authors. Her early education and training as an industrial engineer has stood her in good stead as she moved around the country with her US Air Force family and has directed the Pikes Peak Writers Conference for ten years, and is co-directing the 2023 30th anniversary of the conference.
Please join us at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Saturday, June 18, 2022 via Zoom.
