BEGINNER WRITING SERIES

Sept 9 - Dec 15, 2019


This series looks at the overall book and how to make certain you don’t shortchange your readers.  Get the basics of different ways to plot your book and start to come up with what is necessary to get all the way through your plot. We’ll  look at ways to make certain all the plotting elements are in place in your storyline and get an introduction to building a story board.

We’ll use the Plotting Circle to get your story into shape, whether you normally outline your book or if you would rather let the characters to do the plotting or even if you want to do as little plotting as possible.


This series will help you answer such questions as:

  • Where should you start?
  • How should you start?
  • Do you need to outline everything?
  • What if you would rather not plot at all?
  • How do you know if you’re going in the right direction with your plot?
  • What about subplots?
  • What do you need to know about how to end your book?
  • What if you’re writing a series and need to leave things undone?


We’ll go from coming up with a great beginning all the way to writing THE END for your plot.
