So, you can’t go to the RWA conference this year? Well, don’t fret for long. Romance Divas is hosting their annual NGTCC (Not Going To Conference Conference) and it’s going to be fun-filled. Already they’ve got great guest spots lined up, including: Josh Lanyon, Rowan Mcbride, Jet Mykles and Shayla Kersten, Carrie Jones, Marley Gibson, Linnea Sinclair, Patti O’Shea, Ona Russel, Steve Hockingsmith, Joey W. Hill and Sasha White.

There will be workshops for just about every genre, from Young Adult to Erotic to Historical. Plus, a workshop on Deep POV, one on going from e-publishing to NY, and a Q&A on how avoid and deal with burnout. And there will be a few surprises, too. icon_wink.gif

Maybe you’re planning on going to Nationals and pitching a new story to an agent or editor. Maybe you have an idea for a new story you want to begin writing, but need a little help shaping it. Either way, Rose’s Colored Glasses is mustering recruits for the next Plotting Bootcamp, scheduled to begin the first of June. What makes our plotting workshop different? Every step of the way, you will get feedback and critique. And the price is very affordable for a month’s worth of intensive instruction! Aspiring and published authors will benefit. In fact, we have many returning students who use the workshop to tackle their next big project.

What you can look forward to during Plotting Bootcamp?

Learn a methodical approach to harness your creativity in order to produce an in-depth plot for your next novel! Sound scary? It is-when you’re staring at an empty page without a compass or a map to guide you through the novelistic jungle. Your DIs (drill instructors) will lead you through four weeks of activities that will help strengthen your abilities to: capture the conflicts, the major plot line and subplots; deepen your knowledge of your characters; and conceive of and develop an in-depth, by-chapter description of your book. Elle James and Delilah Devlin will accomplish this with weekly lessons, bi-weekly chats and daily online communication. Be ready for bivouac!
