Hi everyone! Check out the exciting online classes offered by the
Orange County Chapter of RWA!

“Creating that Fatal (or Not So Fatal) Flaw”
with Laurie Schnebly Campbell
September 6 – October 2, 2010

Giving likable, plausible characters a truly compelling conflict is easier with Enneagrams. Counselors and HR managers use this tool to identify the nine distinctive personality types — known as the Perfectionist, the Nurturer, the Achiever, the Romantic, the Observer, the Skeptic, the Adventurer, the Leader and the Peacemaker.

Each one has its own uniquely heroic and appealing traits, as well as a troublesome (if not fatal) flaw that will naturally bring them into conflict with other people…AND with themselves. Find out which strengths and weaknesses will make your characters’ lives more rewarding as they reach their happily-ever-after, and more challenging along the way!

There’ll be lectures and Q&A every weekday, as well as homework assignments every day or two. Homework, of course, is always optional — but people from previous sessions have said that Laurie’s comments on their work make this class unusually helpful in shaping believable characters as well as intriguing plots.

About the Instructor:

Laurie Schnebly Campbell loves speaking to writers about psychology issues that draw on her background as a counseling therapist AND a romance novelist who beat out Nora Roberts for Best Special Edition of the Year. She’s taught workshops, live and online, for writers from New York to New Zealand and Los Angeles to London. In fact, she likes teaching so much that she chose her website (BookLaurie.com) so people would remember to Book Laurie for workshops.

Along with romance and how-to books for writers, Laurie writes scripts for videos and commercials at a Phoenix ad agency. She also enjoys teaching a catechism class, playing with her husband and son, vacationing in Sedona (the red-rock town named for her great-grandmother, Sedona Schnebly), narrating for Talking Books, and working with other writers. Laurie says, “People ask how I find time to do all that, and I tell them it’s easy. I never clean my house!”

Coming in October 2010–

“Mauled Men, Drowned Dames and Crispy Critters; a Body Disposal Primer for Writers”
with Jeanne Adams
October 11 – November 6, 2010

You’ve axed, shot or otherwise knocked off a key character in your latest book, now what? You have to do SOMETHING with the body! Find out everything you ever wanted to know about the pernicious particulars of body disposal and how to use minutiae of death to throw your characters together or drive them apart.

Jeanne P. Adams knows a thing or two about getting rid of a body, in reality as well as in books…her third book, Deadly Little Secrets (Zebra, Sept. 2010) is already being hailed as “One of the best Suspense Books of the Year!” by Romantic Times. She also is a multi-published non-fiction writer and consultant with twelve years of funeral business experience working both for a cemetery and several funeral homes. In her reading, she’s winced over a variety of mistakes dealing with the story’s dead guy (or gal), which led to this class!

COST: $20 for OCC members, $30 for non-members
