where the writers are
Creating Great Characters in Film and Fiction

Next week, November 17th, I'll be giving a master class on Creating Great Characters for Film and Fiction at the Pirates Alley Faulkner Society great literary festival in New Orleans.  I'll explain how to build the right character for your story or how to create the right story from your characters.  We'll be discussing the four classes of villains.  And it's in New Orleans, the city that in spite of all its troubles knows how to have a good time.  So y'all come.

From time to time I'll drop some techniques or ideas I've discovered that have  made my writing better.  Always good to share.

The Faulkner Society WORDS AND MUSIC a literary feast

Words and Music Literary Festival is the most fun a writer can have legally. Besides all the panels and the literary discussions we feasted on fine New Orleans food--even the banquets were delicious--hung out with National Book Award winners, danced, visited the World War II museum, and closed the Carousel Bar. A true literary feast.
