The Chaffee County Writers Exchange is sponsoring a WE Write writing workshop titled “Plot Development and Flaws” to be held from 8:45 a.m. to noon on Monday, April 26. The virtual workshop will be held via Zoom and is free and open to the public.

The workshop will be led by Linda Ditchkus, a local writer and author of three published books in her “The Sasquatch Series.” Among the topics to be covered are:

— What makes a story worth reading?

— What’s the difference between a plot and an incident?

— The connection between plot and character.

— How to draft an opening image.

— Where to start writing once you have a plan.

— Plot pitfalls to avoid.

Participants should bring ideas about a book or short story they hope to complete or some thoughts about one to start. The workshop will include short spontaneous writing assignments emphasizing the topics discussed.
