  • Access 28 lectures & 4 hours of content 24/7
  • Learn the critical difference between a “plot" & a “story" and how to balance the two in your writing
  • Recognize when a character lacks dimension & how to avoid the all-too-common pitfalls of poor character development
  • Understand the “Three Act Structure" & see a graphic demonstration of the “dramatic curve" that underlies virtually all great writings, movies, and even story-telling
  • Discover why professional writers repeat “Scene and Sequel" throughout their novels, & why you should too
  • Use the "Write Big" technique that can turn a flat novel into a sparkling success
  • Create the “collateral material" you need to promote & present your novel to publishers

"This is by far the easiest, most understandable information on writing I've ever heard. It has given me the confidence I need to get through the dreaded ACT II; I am actually excited about continuing and can see the finish line." – Kim
