This was the first day of the Blood and Tea Mystery Writer's Conference. Full Day!
There are four Michigan mystery writers who are leading the workshops. Today, you get pictures of two of them. I chose to feature these two simply because their pictures turned out. I'll try for the other two tomorrow.
Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli spoke about "Beginnings that kill: Openings that grab the reader and don't let go."
Aaron Stander spoke about "Crafting Scenes: Creating Moments"
We also heard from D.E. Johnson on "Creating characters readers can't forget," and from Lev Raphael on "Writing sex scenes that don't make readers laugh."
There was a panel discussion on how to get an agent and also on publishing options. In the evening, two of the authors did readings from their books.
In between, we ate meals together, and one lady and I walked out to the lighthouse to get some exercise. Good connections. I learned things in each of the sessions.
But, I'm very tired. One more day. I'll try to get pix of the other writers.
