We're continuing our look at Double Vision, but instead of talking about the book, let's talk instead about Randall Ingermanson, the man who wrote it. More specifically, let's talk about the fact that Mr. Ingermanson is more than willing to allow writers to "sit at his feet," so to speak, and learn the craft from him.
I was privileged to take his course at the 2006 ACFW Conference. Even though I had to leave often in the middle of the sessions (both my editor and agent appointments were scheduled then), I still got a lot out of it.
But you don't have to plunk down the money for the airfare, hotel stay, conference fees, and what not to gain from Mr. Ingermanson's wisdom (well, you still should because the conference was a blast, but that's another story). Instead, you can head over to his website. Make sure you sign up for his e-zine on writing while you're there.
And also pay special attention to the Snowflake Method. I was able to use it to help condense my sci-fi trilogy's first book into a solid one-sentence summary. I'm also planning on using it to help organize my thoughts about a fantasy book I've been ruminating on for the past four years.
While you're at Mr. Ingermanson's website, be sure to read the story about Shaving Babbitt. Wish I had been there to witness it in person.
