November 2021 Brilliant Bundle

Strengthen your skills with this trio of classes

We understand how 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 keep going?

(And going...)

With the leaves turning and cooler weather coming, now it's a wonderful time to strengthen your writing with classes that will help you to hone your skills. Our November 2021 Brilliant Bundle offers a trio of lessons to help with your writing journey.

Let's begin with...

So You Want to Be an Indie Publisher

In this class, you will learn how to set up your business as an indie publisher...or author. You'll learn what it means to be a publisher, how to set up the right foundation, and four essential areas of focus.

How to Write a Story Hook

What do you do when you pick up a book? Probably read the back cover blurb, and then open to the first page. Then, you have approximately 10 seconds or one to two sentences to capture your reader. A reader is looking for creative writing, a question that piques their interest, someone they can relate to, a setting that interests them, and a story that can match the value of their time. That’s a lot to put into the first sentence, or even the first paragraph! In this class, you'll learn the 5 key elements in a powerful hook, and the ONE TRICK that can help you create a powerful hook!

Emotional Layering

A great story is about drawing your reader into the emotions of your characters, making them feel as if they are the character. In this workshop, you'll learn the different layers of writing emotions, a technique on how to connect your reader to your character, how to feel the emotions of your character (to correctly write about them!) and finally, we'll walk you through an activity that helps you put authentic emotions on the page!

Whatever 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.
