For Writers

For more than 20 years, Dancing on Coals Workshops have been a favorite among fiction writers, talking about conflict, motivation, goals, scene structure, plotting and more. 

The first two workshops are available in Kindle format now, and soon all of DonC's popular workshops will be available for your Kindle. 

Spinning Straw into Gold: 

The Art and Craft of Revisions

Based on the popular online workshop that focuses on revising your novel once you’ve finished the first draft. This book will take you from rough first-draft to polished finished product by putting all your skills together. Learn how to look at the whole landscape instead of just that cloud in the corner, how to revise in waves when necessary and how to revise the manuscript as a whole as well as scene by scene. 

You'll learn how to make sure your characters have come to life, your conflict is real and believable, your characters believably motivated and your sensory texture is richly drawn.
