APRIL 2-27 Deep Story 1 with Carol Hughes
Course Content: What does Nora Roberts, Stephen King, George Lucas (STAR WARS), Stephen Spielberg (E.T.), Terry Russo (SHREK/PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), James Cameron (TITANIC/AVATAR) know about writing that makes them the mega stars that they are? How are they able to turn out the constant string of stories that they do while you are barely able to struggle to the final pages of your current WIP? Why did TITANIC and AVATAR each gross over $1 Billion in ticket sales in only a matter of weeks? Are you interested in learning the secret techniques that each of these mega stars has in common? It’s not as hard as you think – not if you know the simple-to-master writing secrets that they know and haven’t shared with you.
Seasoned pro and beginning writer, punsters to plotter – it doesn’t make any difference. You already know that writing takes a lot of hard work, perseverance, talent and hearty dose of luck. Without the necessary writing tools to craft your wonderful story ideas into a finished work that people want to buy, all the hard work, talent, luck and perseverance in the world is useless without a solid, well-crafted story full of multidimensional characters to make your story come alive for every reader—or movie-goer. Do you know what the 18 scenes are that every story contains, no matter its length or genre? Do you know what impact your character’s mental gender has upon readers? Do you even know what your character’s mental gender is? Do you know how your character’s arc drives your story? Or how you story drives your character’s arc? Do you know the quick and easy way to create heart stopping dilemmas for your characters that drive your readers wild? Do you know what the 4 through-lines of every story is? Do you know how to weave them together?
Every successful story contains characters that come alive for the reader. Every successful story is built on a solid, easy-to-master, story structure that works every single time. Every successful story lives on in the hearts and minds of readers because their authors have mastered the simple secrets needed to turn them into writing super stars. And you can too. Join us and give Nora Roberts something to sorry about.
