Listen, we get it. Launching out into a goal, a dream, a serious endeavor like writing a novel is, well, daunting. You have the fire, the idea, the characters, but how do you organize it all?
And keep going?
With the summer writing season right around the corner, our Marvelous May Power Pack is exactly that--3 hours of lessons on HOW. TO. GET. IT DONE.
Let's start with ORGANIZATION, AKA, Scrivener 101. In this class, I will show you the basics of Scrivener from creating your characters to plotting your story and keeping it all organized. If you have not purchased this amazing program for writers, you can find it here: Scrivener. I'll reveal my tricks and tips for keeping your characters, research and storyworld right at your fingertips, making sure you have the right rhythm and flow for your story, and even show you my template for a novel, the same one I use to write my 60+ novels.
Then, LET'S SET UP YOUR SCENES and blast off with Scene Setup and Your FastDraft Friend. Truth is, starting with the right structure is half the battle to creating great page turners. In this class, I will teach you the SCENE TENSION EQUATION, AND how to maximize your writing time by creating a powerful scene structure. Then, you'll learn how to FAST DRAFT--tips for getting the story on the page, and then how to add in the essential layers and polish to make your story shine.
BUT, a story doesn't matter if the reader doesn't care, right? So, before you dive into that novel, watch our class on The Importance of Story Stakes. I'll coach you through the process of adding those essential stakes to making your readers not only care, but worry about your characters and turning pages!
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. - Goethe
