About This Class

All stories start with characters, and that's what we're going to explore in this class.  We take the first step in plotting a novel or long story by devising the initial stage of the story arc -- creating authentic characters.

Character is plot, right?

Join me and let me show you exactly how that works in this easy to follow tutorial.

Whether you have an early draft of a manuscript, or if you merely have an idea for a book and don't know how to turn it into a cohesive plot, this series is for you.

If you are new to writing and plotting, you might find it more to your benefit to take the first two classes in this series before embarking on this one. 

Part 1 - The Big Picture

Part 2 - Writing Towards Emotional Markers

And if you like the class, please bring your writing buddies outside of Skillshare on board!

Take the next class in the series: Fear and Ambition - Driving Stories Forward
