$49 ~ Master the structural elements of character-driven fiction to write romance novels that readers love.
This course teaches romance fiction from a structural standpoint. You’ll learn about goal, motivation, and conflict, which are the cornerstones of fiction writing. But then we dive deeper to cover character arcs, flaws and stakes, which are vital in character-driven stories like romance. You’ll understand how each element hinges on the others to build the infrastructure of your story, and you’ll gain the confidence to utilize these elements to improve your own books.
The learning modules include plenty of examples from popular films as well as full analyses of three movies and a recorded plotting call with a romance author to help you understand how to use these elements to plan your story. Nearly all modules are offered in both video/audio and text, so you can choose the learning method that’s right for you.
FREE ~ This mini-course puts self-editing tasks into an easy-to-follow list format. You can check off each item before submitting your manuscript to anyone from critique partners to agents and editors. Many of the tasks are quick and use shortcuts in Word such as Find and Replace. Others are a bit more work-intensive, like culling extraneous adverbs or removing filter words and writing in deeper POV, but will ultimately strengthen your story.
