Why Jump Out of  a Perfectly Good Airplane? – The Skydiving World

One of Abigail’s favorite aspects of being an author is getting to meet and swap experiences with other authors. Blend this with her corporate training experience, and you get some knockout workshops. She would be very happy to present one of her workshops to your writing group or organization. Each workshop can be tailored in terms of length and method of delivery (in person, online, skype, etc.).

Description:

If you’re getting ready to write a book that involves skydiving in any way, but you lack the details needed to build a realistic world for your readers, then this is the workshop for you! Abigail started skydiving in college, despite a terrible fear of heights. Turns out, she fell in love with the rush and the sport. She spent eight years jumping out of perfectly good airplanes first at her local drop zone, then with her collegiate club, and later with a professional team. She loves to share this unique experience with others. What better way to share than helping authors trying to write this experience and sport with the details that are so critical to building a realistic world for your readers?

  • Your First Jump
  • What If the Chute Doesn’t Open?
