Creative Writing Workshop: Would You Rather?

How to create character conflict: Get your characters out of their heads and
externalize their inner demons.Thoughts and feelings can be taken back, but
ACTION is what makes characters commit to consequences. Through a
mixture of discussion and writing exercises, we'll explore what our characters
do when the heat turns up. Will they sell their soul to solve their problems? And
at what price?
