Folks, I love LTUE. Love it. Alas, I will only be able to attend Friday. But I can’t wait to listen, present, meet new folks, and catch up with old friends. If you’re a writer in the area–whatever genre it doesn’t matter–you’re going to want to come. Link out to the site to see all the authors that are going to be there. Here’s my schedule.
|Date & Time||Event Type||Area||Notes|

Romance vs. Story with Romantic Elements: Injecting romance into saving the world
- John Brown, Ami Chopine, Stacy Whitman, Lynn Kurland
- FRIDAY: 12 pm – 1 pm
Plotstorming from Character: In some cases the plot of a book drives the characters. However, characters that instead drive the plot can make for a more compelling story. In this hour, we focus on how to grow your plot from your main characters.
- Paul Genesse (I want to hear what Paul has to say, I think this will be interesting)
- FRIDAY: 3 PM – 4 PM
Lessons on Story from THE HUNGER GAMES (and let me tell you, there are a lot of good lessons)
- John Brown
- FRIDAY: 6 PM – 7 PM
How to Get and Develop Killer Story Ideas
- John Brown & Larry Correia (oh, yeah–it’s the dynamic duo)

EDIT 2/7/2011 9:45 PM: Scheduled has changed. The session on Hunger Games moved up an hour. And the story idea session moved back from 10 AM to 7 PM.
