March 2014 Meeting

Date: March 22

Topic: Freud Knows Romance

Speaker: Sandy James: Sandy is an award-winning author writing in multiple genres, including contemporary romance for Grand Central Forever. She also teaches psychology, and has presented her fun, fascinating workshops on psychology and characterization at National RWA conferences.

Description: This workshop empowers participants with some basic psychological principles that will give them tools to use in their characterizations. The workshop includes theories on motivation, explanations of emotion, and discussions of personality formation. Sigmund Freud’s defense mechanisms are a “must know” for writers. Without a grasp of concepts such as rationalization, sublimation, and projection, authors miss some fantastic opportunities to make their heroes and heroines consistent and endearing.
