SAVE THE CAT Novel-Writing Workshop in AUSTIN!

We’ve received MANY requests from novel writers in Austin, asking us to bring the Save the Cat! Novel-Writing Workshop to Texas! So…we are!

Ask and you shall receive!

Ahem...Announcing the very first SAVE THE CAT! Novel-Writing Workshop in AUSTIN!

The workshop will take place on the weekend of April 14th and 15th, 2012. 

All the details, including price and how to register, can be found by clicking here!

In case you’re new to all this, here’s my “spiel” about the SAVE THE CAT! method and the class:

Basically I owe my entire novel-writing career to Save the Cat! A book series by the genius Blake Snyder about how to outline any story in the world. He calls his trusty “formula,” the “Blake Snyder Beat Sheet”, and it consists of 15 “beats” (or story points) that fit into pretty much any movie ever made. And I’ve adapted them to novels to help me outline all my books. Since starting to use the Blake Snyder Beat Sheet, I’ve sold nine novels. Yep…NINE! I don’t think that’s a coincidence! Now, I never start writing another book until I’ve got my trusted 15 beats in place.

And during this two-day workshop, I’m going to teach you exactly how I do it!

Basically it works like this: you come to the workshop with an idea for your next novel (all genres welcome!), the group  spends the next two days working through the 15 beats of each of your ideas, and by the end of the weekend, you have a sturdy (unbeatable!) outline to start writing your book with!

Space is extremely limited. There are only EIGHT spots open for this class. So ACT FAST!

Hope to see you there, Texans!

Happy writing!
