A paradox exists among some authors: they seek to succeed at something that is astoundingly complex, informed only by their experience as a reader of fiction. This thin basis explains much of the frustration and the  long-term, low-odds apprenticeships that are unique to writing fiction.

 

This workshop delivers a jump-start on avoiding costly mistakes while clarifying strategies that instantly impart insight to the process of writing novels that can compete in this evolving market.

Category: Story Structure

 

Structure is a contextual  principle, rather than a formula. When mastered it elevates the reading experience while avoiding  mistakes and misjudg-ment so common to newer writers. It is both  process and genre-neutral, as flexible as it is inevitable.

 

This workshop will introduce the core structural model of commercial fiction, while illuminating its flexibility and upside as an empowering narrative tool. Inaccurate mythologies about it will be dashed within the clarity of a bold new understanding

In novels, concept is to premise what color is to art. What fuel is to internal combustion. When a story's premise is conceptually-driven, the result can raise it to another level of intrigue, empowering it to compete at the very highest levels.

 

Learn how and why concept and premise are actually different things, a critical difference-making nuance that eludes many, while rewarding those who get it. Using definitions, criteria and familiar examples, this workshop  will pull back the curtain on an evolved awareness that can change your stories and your career.

Sometimes it can seem like any and all coaching or "how-to" conventional wisdom can be reduced to a pithy tip, too often lending itself to a one-approach-fits-all perception. This, in turn, can lead to cynicism and doubt about any and all tips, leaving the emerging writer as confused as they are without guiding principles.

 

This workshop challenges some of the most prevalent writing tips we encounter on our writing journey, mining for truth and applicable value which can manifest in ways you might not expect, yet will be of immediate benefit.
