Overcoming Writer’s Block with Carolyn Martinez

21 Jul

This month, the Helensvale Writers’ Group had a productive workshop with Carolyn Martinez.

Brisbane Book Authors co-ordinator

Carolyn Martinez is a former newspaper editor/owner and the author of two non-fiction books – ‘Finding Love Again’ and ‘Inspiring IVF Stories’. She is an Author’s Coach offering manuscript structural assessments, editing, proofreading and book production services. In her spare time, she co-ordinates Brisbane Book Authors, a not-for-profit social networking group for published authors.

The Helensvale writers were delighted to learn how to overcome Writer’s Block with Carolyn Martinez because she does not believe in Writer’s Block. How refreshing!

Deep Point of View (DPV)

Learning and gaining new knowledge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition, Carolyn shared her understanding on Deep Point of View (DPV) – “a technique that strips the author voice out of the prose” and allows us “to dig deeper into the mental state of the character”. This technique is currently in favour with editors and publishers. How did we miss that one?

For the members of the Helensvale Writers Group it was not easy to grasp the insights of DPV from the initial introduction by Carolyn Luckily, as soon as Carolyn took us through her workshop-based exercises, enlightenment filled the room. We are very grateful to Carolyn Martinez for the opportunity to learn from her.

Thank you very much!

    Dear Carolyn, your workshop was both: productive and fun. I feel confident that our group is now well-informed in order to make decision on when to use Deep Point of View (DPV). Greatly appreciated your effort to share your personal and professional knowledge. It was real pleasure to meet you. Thank you very much!!!
