You're writing a book...but suddenly...
I understand. Having written 50 books, I promise you, I encounter those thoughts in every single book. But, after fifty novels, I have found a few tricks on pushing through, getting the words on the page and making sure I'm creating a powerful story.
Would you like to learn my secrets? Watch a book come together, see how I wrestle through these plot and character issues, layer the plot onto the page, weave in emotions and create tension?
Then the Build-a-Book series if for you!
In this class, build a book with me, RITA award-winning, best-selling novelist Susan May Warren. I will bring you inside the storycrafting process, teaching you how to create characters, a plot, develop conflict, the black moment, the epiphany and finally… the happy ending.
Experience the creation process, watch the decisions that plot each step of our hero’s journey, learn the nuances of crafting a story, and get the tools to write your own novel.
At the end of the series you can read the book we created together! I’m really excited to share my secrets and let you peek behind the curtain.
You too can Build-a-Book.
