This March, AllWriters’ Workplace and Workshop Brings You: Tick Tock: Frameworks, Plot clocks and Slowing Time!

This workshop will focus on the many ways writers have to think about time in their writing. Let’s consider a novel’s frame, to determining the amount of time each scene might take and where it occurs within the plot clock, to using inscene action and slowing time to heighten tension. We’ll review a novel in which the entire frame is set in a five-minute elevator ride, a novel that occurs in one night, and epic novels. We’ll brainstorm ideas for novels that might occur in a brief time span and novels that might cover one life or generations. Finally, this hands-on workshop will help participants explore and develop scenes that rely upon summary, real-time, and slow time.
