Looking to wake up your writing and get inspired?
Starting in September I’m doing a 90-minute writing webinar every month. A new topic each month, a new opportunity to grow your craft.
Discover how to structure a powerful plot to create the stories you’ve always wanted to write
Discover how to maximize your setting that turns blah narrative into an all-powerful tool on the page
Discover how to compel your readers to turn the pages of your novels from the first sentence to the last.
“I tend to simply wait to see what my characters will do that grows into a story. It sounds romantic. It’s not. It’s enough to make me pull my hair out. What I really want is to maximize my productivity and have a stronger vision or plan for the story. There’s a part of me that desperately wants to be an architect. I want to increase production and to do that I need to alter my process.
“I am inspired AND re-energized. As much as I’ve wanted to write fiction, and as much as I’ve studied the writing of fiction, it never made much sense to me until now. You have so much information to share, and you are a master at sharing it. Thanks so much for putting this together for us. It has been a big blessing for me right at this time of my life. ~ Mary M
The template approach forces me to identify the base conflicts of the story in the beginning and helps ensure that every scene I write drives the plot forward. I recommend the Break Into Fiction® workshop to writers of all levels who want to write tight, tense, conflict-driven stories, and because Mary is awesome.”
There aren’t many people I can think of who can help writers as much as you do.
Discover the difference between Ordinary Setting that bogs down your story, and Active Setting that empowers your story.
Learn how to spin boring descriptions into engaging prose.
Many writers have heard of hooks, and have heard we should use them in our manuscripts as a tool to engage readers and keep them engaged, but what we’re not told is how to identify what a hook is or where to use them to maximize them other than in that key opening line.
Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser (write by the seat of your pants), Break Into Fiction® is the book that will help you find the weak spots (sagging middles, unlikeable characters, slow pacing and more) in your fiction stories. Editing is key to any story, but it starts with the author. Writing fast means nothing if the final story isn’t sound. But the sooner you grasp the power points for a story, the faster you’ll be able to build a strong backlist. Now you have a way to improve your writing one easy step at a time.
