(Class for Intermediate level. 90 minutes) This 100-question sequence is intended as a roadmap for the writer who has some mastery of technique and knowledge of his/her material, but needs guidance in organizing material and working through the writing process. Specific Details: The process of developing a novel is broken down into a Decision List of 100 questions. As applied to the mystery field, these begin with setting up basic ingredients and guiding the writer through the entire process of researching, planning, writing, revising, and marketing a mystery novel. Benefits to Participants: Many writers are daunted by the overwhelming nature of the task before them. The 100 Question method applies a systems-analysis approach to the writing process and permits the writer to tackle his/her job in do-able increments.
