Tucson Sisters in Crime Program for November 2020

November 21, 2020  1:00 to 3:00 PM  via Zoom

Finding the Perfect Story Structure to show your characters and plot to best advantage can be intimidating. You’ve created your characters, know what they want/need to do, but how do you capture your reader’s attention while you get your characters moving in the right direction?  What is a “Hook?” What is the “Call to Adventure?” What is the “Hero’s Journey?” What is the     difference between a plot turn and a plot pinch? Why do so many structure systems sound so similar?

The answers are simpler than most writers may think: Kevin Ikenberry will discuss the key— and often overlooked—aspect of character development. He will delve into several story structure patterns, show the similarities and how you can use them together if you choose.

Characters and structure are the core of compelling story-telling: we’ll even get to the bottom     of why movies make us cry.

Kevin Ikenberry is a life-long space geek and retired Army officer.  As an adult, he managed the U.S. Space Camp program and served as a space operations officer before Space Force    was a “thing.” He’s an international bestselling author, award finalist, and a core author in the wildly successful Four Horsemen Universe. His eleven novels include Sleeper Protocol, Vendetta Protocol, Runs in the Family, Peacemaker, Honor the Threat, Stand or Fall, Deathangel and Fields of Fire. He’s co-written several novels with other amazing authors. He is an Active Member of SFWA, International Thriller Writers, and SIGMA–the science fiction think tank.

Please join us at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM November 21, 2020 via Zoom. Please note the extended time!
