Plot and structure.
We are going to discover why many beginning (and often advanced)
writers create fiction with no story. We will map out the key elements
of plot and structure, and what makes a story a story.

Description and detail
Our goal is to understand the true purpose of description and detail,
and why neither should be treated as fluff information strewn blindly
throughout the story.

Point of View and Dialogue
We are going to study the various viewpoints and learn tricks and tips
to make your story come alive. We are also going to delve into the
intricacies of solid dialogue.

Creating great characters
Then we are going to wrap it all up with the unifying element: character.
We will endeavor to find ways of turning the cardboard into well-rounded,
flesh and blood people.

Online Writing Classes

I teach a couple of writing classes every week in my hometown for a local
college. I get a kick out of witnessing students experiencing Aha! Moments.

A few folks have asked me to offer classes online.

Well, I am considering this. I am researching the best way to make it happen so
the student gets the best experience possible.

If you're interested in signing up, drop an email to the following address:

I will send you an email with all the details (when I have them) to see if you
would like to sign up.

Hope to see you there!
