How to Write a Story That Rocks Workshop – The Video

So… how do you write stuff?  Good question.  Watch this:

Or you can go direct to Youtube:

A big thanks to Stephen Nelson for recording this and putting it together.

At LTUE, author John Brown and I did a 2 hour seminar called “How to Write a Story That Rocks”.  This was the first time we’d done this together, and I do believe it turned out pretty good.  Now, keep in mind, I’ve only just watched the first segment.  A. Yes, I’ve gotten a little chunkier this year.  B. Am I always that damn bouncy and twitchy?  Holy crap, now I know where my kids get it from.  (in my defense, I had just gotten onto a new BP medication that makes me a little bouncy)

Since this was originally John’s baby, and I was just tagging along, there were still some bugs to work out. Mostly because I didn’t really know what was going on until I got there, but I do believe that it actually turned out extremely well, and we got a ton of compliments from the aspiring writers there about how helpful the whole thing turned out. 

So I hope you find this useful.

WhaHoooo! Get to see the back of my big fat head, framed by two of my favorite authors, AND I get to see the seminar all over again.
Now, where did I put my notebook from that night so I can see how much I missed.


Great vid. I love seeing how professional writers approach their craft.

I definitely need to make it to LTUE next year. The folks that got to attend this year are lucky.

Thanks to Hezikiah Kidron for posting that on youtube.


Man I wanted to be there… I don’t know how many times I yelled “Cattle mutilation, and guns” at you guys, during the brainstorming parts. 😀
