Anchoring Your Reader
Learn what it means to anchor your reader in your scenes and how to use anchoring to strengthen your story.
We understand how launching out into a goal, a dream, or a serious endeavor like writing a novel is, well, daunting. You have the fire, the idea, and the characters, but how do you keep going?
As you walk through this year, we can help you hone your skills and achieve your writing goals. We are now offering single classes for non-members who would like to purchase lessons to help grow their writing careers.
Anchoring is a part of storyworld, but not all storyworld is anchoring. Tari Faris shares Anchoring and talks about what the term means, why your editor keeps asking for more, and how to add it seamlessly to your manuscript in a few simple steps.
I have been writing fiction for more than fifteen years. It has been an exciting journey for this math-loving-dyslexic girl. I had read less than a handful of novels by the time I graduated from college and I thought I would end up in the field of science or math. But God had other plans and I wouldn't trade this journey for anything. As someone told me once, God's plans may not be easy, and they may not always make sense but they are never boring.
I am a member of ACFW and My Book Therapy. I am a 2017 Genesis winner, 2016 Genesis finalist and double semi-finalist, 2014 Genesis finalist, 2012 Genesis semi-finalist, and a 2012 Frasier bronze medalist.
In addition to my writing, I also work for My Book Therapy as a special projects manager. When I am not writing or working, I spend time with my amazing husband and our three sweet children. In my free time, I love coffee, rock hounding with my husband and kids, and distracting myself from housework.
