Transitions and Associations

The act of moving a character from one scene to the next, or naturally changing his or her train of thought, can be shown by using transitions. Learn techniques for creating movement through the use of imagery. Good transitions add unity and flow to your novel.

When a word or image evokes a thought or sensation, it is often because an association has been made that arouses emotions. Learn to create images that stir feelings in your readers, and take your story to a deeper level.

This powerful writing workshop will help you improve your craft and gain insight into your characters, setting and conflicts. Open to all levels of writers.

Practice and improve your transitions and associations!
