I will be presenting this weekend at The 20th Annual Western Reserve Spring Writers’ Conference: Saturday, March 26, 2011 8:30 a.m. – 1: 30 p.m.
My session will be 10:30 – 11:30 a.m.
PLOTTING SCI-FI AND FANTASY: Plotting is the engine that makes a story go. You can populate your story with the most interesting characters in the world, have a gorgeous prose style, and present the most intricate world-building imaginable, but if the story has a weak or absent plot, it’ll just sit there inert, failing to engage the reader. S. Andrew Swann will present the questions you’ll need to ask in a SF/F story—and in fiction in general—in order to rev up that idling plot engine.
