Free Writing Workshop at Romance Divas!

Today begins RITA winner Linnea Sinclair's workshop at Romance Divas. To participate, you just need to register in the Forum section of the website. Registration cost the same as the workshop - nothing! Here are the details on the workshop this fabulous author will be presenting:

Feb 19th - 23rd


Writing Guru Dwight Swain said that it's the author's job to manipulate the emotions of the reader. There's no better way to do this than for the author to put his characters through one roller coaster episode after another, taking the reader along for the ride. But how much conflict, how much character angst is too much? How can an author keep the action from becoming cartoonish? Bantam Spectra author Linnea Sinclair answers those questions and more in this fun and fast-paced (because torturing students is good, too!) workshop that explores the importance of conflict in today's commercial fiction novels.


  1. Thanks for the heads up. :)

  2. This is a particularly helpful subject for me right now. My CP is worried that I'm giving my heroine too many obstacles to overcome, putting her through too much turmoil. Usually my problem is not enough plot, so it's a delightful problem to have for a change. :D

  3. I'll try to make it to the workshop. I love those workshops at RD. :)
