February Write Brain: Order From Chaos: Fiction Plotting Devices for the Non-Fiction Writer

Take the best fiction-writing advice and learn to apply it to your non-fiction writing.

Real life. Easy to write, right? Open the laptop. Type. But wait, is something missing? Order from chaos. While our lives follow a series of random events, memoirs and essays that want an audience do not.

This plotting workshop for nonfiction (memoir, personal essay, and creative nonfiction) utilizes fiction plotting devices to take memoir and personal essay to the next level.

Presenter Cindy Skaggs grew up on stories of mob bosses, horse thieves, cold-blooded killers, & the last honest man. Those mostly true stories gave her a lifelong love of storytelling and heroes. Her search for story took her around the world with the Air Force before returning to Colorado where she’s turning her lifelong love of storytelling into fast-paced romantic suspense. She has seven published novels, an MFA in Creative Writing, three jobs, two kids, and more pets than she can possibly handle. Find her on Facebook as Cindy Skaggs, Writer, @CLSkaggs on Twitter, or www.CSkaggs.com.
