Plotting for Pantsers with Joy Spraycar at the Brigham City Public Library
Oct 24, 2017, 7:00 pm
Tired of writing in circles or flying by the seat of your pants when you write? Join author Joy Spraycar for “Plotting for Pantsers,” a discussion to help get through those obstacles and get a firm grip on the goals, motivations, and more in your work.
Pantsers often spend more time "writing in circles" or doing massive rewrites. Joy Spraycar offers a way for Pantsers to ask themselves just enough questions to help them get a firm grip on the Goals, Motivations, Conflicts, Characterizations, Settings, and Main Plot Points. These questions help them write a first draft more quickly and one that requires less rewrites, all while keeping the excitement of discovery that Panters love alive.
Joy Spraycar is an Award-Winning, Best- Selling author of Gothic, Paranormal, Post-Apocalyptic, and Urban Fantasy Novels. Her First Novel, Quicksilver Won the Bronze Medal from the League of Utah Writers and the Golden Quill for best first book from the Texas Desert Rose Contest of Romance Writers of America. Tawny’s Ghost also won the Golden Pen from Heart of the West Contest of Romance Writers of America. She was also voted top Novelist in 2010 for Phantom Wolves.
She is Past President of Utah Romance Writers of America chapter and has served on that board since 2010. She got her first taste of publishing in 7th Grade when her horror story was published in the National Scholastic Magazine. She has written all her life, but didn’t start publishing until 2009.
This event is made possible with the support of Brigham City Public Library and Utah Humanities.
