Day 23: The Inciting Incident with Devi Snively
Our First Fifty-Day Writing Challenge
What is the Inciting Incident? What is it not? How is it tied intrinsically to your protagonist(s) and how do you discover one (or two?) that really works? Fiction writer and celebrated screen writer Devi Snively helps us find the answers.
An award-winning screenwriter/filmmaker, modestly published short fiction author and contributor to Beyond the Bechdel (a feminist cinema blog), Devi Snively is an alumnus of AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women and Fox Studios Filmmakers Lab, and scholarship winner of the Nostos Screenwriting Retreat and Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing. She recently graduated from GrubStreet's Novel Incubator and is currently revising her first novel and working on a collection of short speculative stories.
