We have winners!
As you can see from the sign Teddy is holding, he randomly picked three winners from comments that were posted over the past 5 days of the workshop. He drew them out of the bowl with his claws, which are due for a serious trimming. Congratulations to Crystal Quartz, Calico Kelsey and Ester Jade! You'll each receive one of these books: WRITING THE NOVEL FROM PLOT TO PRINT by Lawrence Block, HOW TO WRITE KILLER FICTION by Carolyn Wheat, or PLOTTING AND WRITING SUSPENSE FICTION by Patricia Highsmith. Please email me at jkduvall at bendbroadband dot com with your snail mail address so I can mail you your prize.
Well, I had an awesome week last week, despite Friday's Blogger drama of getting locked out of my blog. It totally ruined my day. But I'm back on track now and will blog normally again beginning on Monday. I hope you'll come back to visit.
Thank you for participating in my workshop. I enjoyed reading your talented homework assignments, and I hope you all had fun and learned something, too. I've given a variety of in-person writing workshops over the years, but this is my first ever online. This workshop worked out so well that I'll likely give another one. I have a workshop on the secondary character hierarchy (yes, there really is one, but it's my invention so you'll have to take my word for it) and one on discovering your storyteller's voice. So you may see one of these here in the future.
If you ever plan to attend a writer's conference, where all the workshops are fabulous, I highly recommend Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' Colorado Gold. The next one is September 12-14, 2008 and you can learn more about it here.
