I ask you to come with unedited, disconnected fragments- all the bits and pieces you’ve stored away in drawers and cupboards. I show you a way to patch them together- a way you’d never dream of. You’ll find they tell a story. And then we streamline it, so your story is on its way.
WE’LL WORK ON:
- Linking your fragments to become a story.
- Voice, how to know when you’ve found it, how to re-find it constantly. Every published fiction writer knows the struggle is not for the plot, but for the voice.
- Character- how to develop unique characters, how to run with them, inhabit them and collude with them, how to dress them and give them story-telling characteristics.
- How to write a riveting beginning and a satisfying ending.
- How to create suspense, so your story is a page-turner.
