I was delighted to attend a whole day suspense writing workshop with Hallie Ephron yesterday. Thanks to DARA for organizing it.
I am not sure if I will be writing suspense in future; I would love to. The workshop, however did equip me with the basic tools to attempt writing a romantic suspense fiction piece. It sure is different from writing romance and involves very different techniques to build a storyline. Nonetheless, it was very intellectually satisfying to sit amongst various authors and collectively learn the process.
The exchange of ideas in any writing workshop is always very stimulating.
