Workshop-of-the-Month Giveaway for December

December 1, 2015

Greetings to all my fellow novelists and welcome to your free writer’s workshop for the month of December. I’ll take this moment to wish you a wonderful Christmas for you and yours. I love this season when we celebrate the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ!

I can get into the spirit of giving quite early as I offer up this free workshop to all my fellow authors!

Be A Novelist Writer’s Workshops are gleaned from my many years of –

  • Working one-on-one with writing students
  • Teaching workshops both in my local community and at writer’s conferences all across the country
  • Serving for nine years as a writing instructor for an international correspondence school
  • Freelance writing and ghostwriting for clients in the global community
  • And of course – from my own personal experiences throughout my life-long writing career

The title of our December workshop is:

 Tag Lines – He Said; She Said 

Last month our lesson covered the subject of writing dialogue; this month’s lesson fits hand-in-glove as it goes into the importance of well-executed tag lines in dialogue. Poorly written tag lines will be a sure sign of an amateur writer. It’s like the “tell-all” to a savvy editor (and reader).  If your tag lines are heavier than the dialogue, you have a problem. This Be A Novelist Workshop will help you nip that problem in the bud – quickly!

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

  • How to create taglines that allow the author to disappear
  • What “swifties” are and how to avoid them
  • The best and the worst taglines
  • Substitutes for “said”
  • When to drop taglines altogether
  • And much more
