Plot Structure–Building the Foundation to a Page-Turning Story-Pt 1 of Plotting

Before you start writing your story, you need a clear idea of where your story is going. Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he presents his class, "Plot Structure – Building the Foundation to a Page-Turning Story." This class will give you insight into how to create a structure that will become the foundation for your story, as well as providing you with several tools to help you stay organized. From plotting in reverse, to a three-act play, this class will help you understand how to set the "beats" of your story and how to insure that you hit them, leaving your readers hungry for more.

Please download and print out the class handout to bring with you as one will not be provided. Find it, along with other handouts, in the my MAD writing section of my website at

    Really enjoyed the first class I attended. If I don't get lost again and can operate on 3 hours sleep, I'll be there. Already printed the downloads.
