9E: Resuscitating Your Darlings
Limited Capacity seats available

One of the truisms of writing is that you sometimes have to "kill your darlings." True as this may be, it's not the whole story. In many instances, your dead darlings can be revisited so as to enhance an unfocused narrative. In this session, you'll explore ways to temporarily revive your darlings so that they can provide guidance from beyond. Using everything from Character Biographies to Backstories to Directors' Cuts, we'll take what we've already written and let it show us how to replace it with even better work.
