My theater-themed novel DEATH TROUPE features the playwright Jack Glynn and is loaded with the creative process.
On the left side of this screen, I've posted the slide presentations from a few writing workshops I've conducted since getting published:
"Nobody Talks Like That: Writing Believable Dialogue"
"The Brute Force & Ignorance Approach: Writing When You Have No Plan, No Plot, and Even No Point"
"They Are Walking All Over Me: What to Do When Your Characters Misbehave"
"But I Know I Said That in Chapter Three: Keeping Track of Plot, Characters, and Clues"
On a more fundamental note, I also posted a slide show on "Writing the Basic Essay".
I converted the slide shows to MS Word and added some comments; please be patient when scrolling, as the slides sometime take a moment to appear.
