Cherry Adair’s Master Class Program

DAY ONE: Cherry Adair delivers a fast-moving, informative, all-day class on plotting and the essential elements of plot. This workshop will bring participants to the next level of plotting. (And yes, this class is also for those of you who write by the seat of your pants!) You will learn the essential structure and vital elements of plotting so that you write faster and smarter. Using the Post It note technique Cherry perfected, she’ll walk everyone through plotting a book from start to finish. Cherry will show, step by step, how this easy visual plotting method works, giving the class a tangible, foolproof way to plot that they will be able to apply immediately to their own work. Bring with you everything you have about the book you want to plot, those scraps of paper with story ideas, or just an idea, you’ll go home with a fabulous, intricately plotted book.

DAY TWO: Cherry will show you how to build 3-D characters who leap off the page, how to create luminous dialogue, how to construct a viable career plan even if you don’t have the career you want – yet, how to layer and texture your novel so that every word does at least two jobs. You’ll learn the secrets of writing riveting action, and how to write succinct, evocative descriptions. This is a fun and intense class, so take your vitamins, and drink two cups of coffee! Cherry will keep you on your toes, and fill your brain with everything you need to write effortlessly, and fabulously.
