Mentor Texts for Writers and Character Post

Mentor Texts for Writers

Recently I had the privilege of doing a workshop in Northern Virginia for a group of writers. The lovely and amazing Dianna Aston spoke in the morning about the stories behind her books. I spoke in the afternoon on using mentor texts to become a better writer. Johnell DeWitt, the organizer, took video of it. Here are some of the highlights in case you are interested.
