Marin (Zoom): Book Mapping
September 28, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Topic: Book Mapping – Be Your Own Developmental Editor
A book map is a “big picture” overview of a book, broken down chapter by chapter and scene by scene, usually in the form of a table. It allows you to look objectively at an entire story, all at once.
In this workshop, you will learn:
• to determine which elements to track in your book map
• to find and fix problems with plot, character, theme, etc.
• to use book mapping as a tool throughout story development
• to be your own developmental editor
• to work collaboratively with others to identify areas for improvement
• about the many resources available to help with your writing projects
