In December 1843, Charles Dickens published a little story that became a sensation. In it, a misanthropist misery turns into a philanthropic optimist… overnight.
This beloved story has the widest and craziest character arc in all of Western literature (and the most flawless three-act structure). This workshop examines how Dickens pulled off making a character you love to hate (but still identify with) take a 12-hour 180 degree turn, changing his life forever.
Bring a pen and paper to do some interactive exercises that will help you pull off one of the most difficult parts of your own story with style.
Teresa Morgan is a multi-published local Ottawa author of hot contemporary sheikh romances. This workshop is proof that all the money she spent on her degree in English Literature didn’t go completely to waste.
We will also be holding a holiday pot-luck lunch. See chat loop for details.
