Workshop Wednesday

Sex & Violence (Without the Sex) and Alpha Male Warriors with Bob Mayer

April 4, 2010 – April 18, 2010
$15 for PI Members; $20 for Non-members

Writing action scenes requires being in real time and real people. This presentation will focus both on how to write action scenes effectively, but also understanding the subtext to the scene in terms of reality, personalities, and effect on plot and character. Tactics, weapons, hand-to-hand, etc. will be covered. The mindset of a warrior (and the coward) approaching and involved in action scenes will be discussed. Lessons will be presentations with questions to be asked afterward and answered in next lesson.

Six lessons:
1: Character: Who are these people and why are they fighting?
2: Plot, Setting and Point of View in Action scenes.
3: Writing Action
4: Weapons, tactics, martial arts, and how to kill with your pinkie.
5: The mind of the Warrior.
6: Wrap up and final questions answered.

  1. Yeah, I'd like to learn how to use my pinkie effectively.

    Know how he's going to do the workshop. Dial-up isn't good for some types of workshops.

  2. Hi Jolie,
