Many aspiring novelists write with the hope based on a myth that inspiration will come if they spend enough time at the keyboard. The result is time wasted on a flabby novel with no clear shape and a sagging pace.
In this professional workshop you will learn how asking creative questions and working with the essential building blocks of an effective story, can empower your writing so the stories you create are both transformative, powerful and unforgettable.
This workshop not only presents the essential elements of story building but provides tools and practical templates that help conjure the inspiration and insight you need to write better books.
These tools are applicable to novel authors as well as those telling stories in other media, including screenwriters and documentary filmmakers.
