I applied to work on novel number three, working title, Designed for Love.
Lawrence Hill is the facilitator for the Fiction Colloquium.
Now you might wonder how an esteemed award winning writer of fiction and non-fiction might help a women’s fiction with romantic elements writer.
Lawrence Hill remembered my writing and agreed that I could be a member of the five writers in this workshop.
I was scheduled to read from my WIP on Thursday, July 24, 2014. Lawrence Hill gave me an exercise for the four minute and thirty second reading. He suggested that I take the first eight pages of my manuscript and condense it into less than four pages. It took me several tries to remove words, sentences, and compress paragraphs. I completed the task. The good news was that it worked. I had a strong piece to read and of course I now have a strong opening for “Designed for Love.”
Good writers and good readers can assist writers to move their work to another level.
If you have the opportunity, find a good writer to work with and have fun.
Lawrence Hill nurtures talent. Sage Hill Writing Experience ends on July 31, 2014. I have six more days in this environment. I may never want to leave.
