  1. PLOT

    The first class will focus on PLOT and how important all its elements are in making your story a story. The majority of today’s writers does not know or understand the components necessary for a successful story. And because of this, editors like myself see 90% of the submitted manuscripts we get as having no story.


    DESCRIPTION

    This class will focus on description in every sense…character, setting, etc. We will focus on the type of description that is acceptable, and what is not. We will also learn how to use description to move the story forward and how to use it for better characterization.


    POINT OF VIEW & DIALOGUE

    The first part of this class focuses on point of view, how to tell the difference between the various choices, how to choose the right one, and how to change if needed, and those things that will certainly make you look like an amateur if you are not careful.

    The second part of this class will focus on dialogue and its myriad uses. What criteria must be present in order for dialogue to be considered needed in your story. We will discuss the two things it must do to work.


    CREATING GREAT CHARACTERS

    The final class will focus on tips for turning cardboard characters into living, breathing, individuals. We will focus on dozens of layers you can use to mold and shape all the people in your stories.


    By the end of this course, the writer will have the foundation and insight to create stories that will have all the elements needed for an agent or editor to take you seriously. Ultimately, this course will put the student ahead of the majority of his or her competition.
