Editor, writer, and publisher Nancy Quatrano will present The Scoop on Backstory: 10 Tips to Develop and Use it Effectively. The difference between average characters and an average manuscript can often be the difference between employing the right type and amount of back story, at the right time. We all know our characters weren’t born yesterday, and that we’re all products of our past, but how much past is too much? The workshop will include character development worksheets and a tip sheet to help you develop your “backstory muscles” so that this very important craft tool will make your work shine.
This meeting is sponsored by the Florida Writers Association/Ancient City Chapter and the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine. All book sales benefit the Friends of the Library. Doors open at 10am. All meetings are free and open to the public.
