Saturday began with fresh breakfast and lessons on yearning. Jessica Reidy taught the class on using character’s yearning – both interior and superficial – to not only deepen the plot, but make it believable and authentic. In the afternoon, we had our second workshop, breaking off into small groups to discuss and critique each other’s work. It was bright and sunny for the first time in a few days, so most groups sat outside in the chateau’s courtyards to soak up some sun and talk writing. After a long day at Chantilly, it was wonderful to relax and enjoy the craft and weather.
