March 2023 Brilliant Bundle

A trio of classes to strengthen your writing skills.

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?

(And going...)

As we walk into a new month, keep in mind the goals you envisioned at the start of the New Year that fit your values. We can help you hone your skills and achieve your writing goals. Our March 2023 Brilliant Bundle offers a trio of lessons to help with your writing journey.

Let's begin with...

Scene Overhaul

In her Good to Great series, Susie began by sharing a plot, and then she offered tips to strengthen it by walking through the characters' SEQs and the LINDY HOP. This step-by-step editing series takes a book from rough draft to ready. In this class, she overhauls a scene. You'll learn what to keep and how to make your scenes stronger without just rearranging the words.

Holy Hustle Part 3

Our 2019 Book Club selection was Holy Hustle: Embracing a Work-Hard, Rest-Well Life by Crystal Stine. In our final segment, we talked about the importance of community, letting your light shine, and the blessing of rest. If you'd like to purchase a copy of Crystal Stine's book, you can by it here: Holy Hustle

Hooks & Tropes in Category Romance

During this class, Lisa Jordan hosted her editor, Melissa Endlich, senior editor with Love Inspired Books. Melissa talked about hooks and tropes and how they work in category romance. She also answered questions asked by our attending members.

What You Can Do, or Dream You Can, Begin It; Boldness Has Genius, Power, and Magic in It. - Goethe

Hi. I'm Susan May Warren. I started writing while I lived in Siberia (yes, you heard that right--cold, snowy, Siberia). Alone. No one to help me, overwhelmed and not a little discouraged. Eighteen years later, I've published over 80 books in five different genres, have landed on numerous bestseller lists (including USA Today), won the RITA, CHRISTY and CAROL awards (and others) and started a school for novelists.

I've learned a few things along the way (beyond techniques on how to stay warm in the tundra!) Most importantly I learned that if I wanted to be published, I had to figure out how to write a book, how to edit it, how to step back from my stories, look at them with a critical eye, figure out what a good manuscript looks like, and then use my unique voice to make that happen.

I'd like to teach you how to write a good book. Edit it...and then, we'll talk about selling it.
