Writing Multiple Storylines
In this interactive workshop, you will explore and discuss parallel story structures and investigate ways combining different perspectives or time lines deepen the plot, suspense, and mystery.
Best-selling author D.M. Pulley will share her experiences weaving historical story threads into present day narratives. Through multiple examples, Pulley will demonstrate different techniques to develop resonant story lines and ways to guide the reader along a shifting path.
Together with fellow participants, you will outline the advantages and pitfalls of jumping back and forth in time or between characters and determine where best to use this technique in your own work.
Before becoming a full-time writer, D.M. Pulley worked as a Professional Engineer rehabbing historic structures and investigating building failures. Pulley's survey of a vacant building in Cleveland inspired her debut novel, THE DEAD KEY, winner of the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Since then, Pulley has published three more titles, sold over a half million books, and her work has been translated into eight different languages. Pulley's historical thrillers shine a light into the darker side of life in the Midwest. The abandoned buildings, haunted houses, and buried past of the Rust Belt continue to inspire her work.
