It’s All About the Emotion
Writing emotion is one of the most important elements to telling a story, but particularly in popular genre fiction. Whatever the genre, they have one thing in common and that is that if we want our readers emotionally invested in our books, they need to *feel* the story. Emotion is layered into the conflict, reflected in the characterization and key to creating a compelling plot. Lucy Monroe will host an interactive discussion and short writing exercise to hone that all important skill: getting emotion down on paper.
With more than 7 million copies of her books in print worldwide, award winning and USA Today bestseller Lucy Monroe has published over 70 books and had her stories translated for sale all over the world. While she writes multiple subgenres of romance, all of her books are sexy, deeply emotional and adhere to the concept that love will conquer all. A passionate devotee of romance, she adores sharing her love for the genre with her readers.

While the WCWF takes a break in January, December’s presenter, Sage Cohen, sent along this message to help us fiercely pursue our goals in 2018!
It was such a pleasure being with you at the Washington County Writer’s Forum on December 7! Thanks so much for being with us—and for participating so fully!
As promised, I’ve included links to a few, additional free gifts!
I’ve also added you to my sagecohen.com mailing list (if you weren’t on it already), where you’ll get occasional tips and missives from me about the writing life.
Just for joining the list, you’ll be invited to choose one of two digital workbooks (valued at $9.99) for free.
Wishing you a focused and fierce 2018! May you cross the finish line for your #1 goal! (I’d love to know how it’s going along the way!)
Yours in the fierce writing adventure!
