1:00 – 2:00 p.m.
Dorothea Hubble Bonneau
Award-winning novelist, memoirist , playwright, optioned screenwriter
Inspired by a quest for justice, Dorothea’s work is informed by her love of family, nature, and the dramatic arts. Her new book — Once in a Blood Moon — celebrates the intelligence, courage, culture and character of African Americans, First Nation Peoples, and indentured servants who created the backbone for the United States of America.
Please join us to learn how to create show-not-tell characters and true-to-life shared worlds. Listener take-aways will allow you to:
- Graph your story worlds and create character profiles using Geert Hofstede’s theory of cultural dimensions.
- Determine whether a character’s decisions are more influenced by internal or external motivation.
- Implement non-verbal communication patterns to reveal status and standing of your characters.
