Call #3 Tuesday, November 13th - 1:00-2:00 EST

Characters: How well do you know them? If you don’t know them, your readers won’t care to get to know them. Well-written characters are physiologically, sociologically and psychologically developed. In this call we’ll cover everything from archetypes to point of view to character backstory. Without any one of these elements, your characters will be flat and so will your story. This call teaches you how to write characters that your readers will never forget. 

Call #4 Tuesday, November 20th - 1:00-2:00 EST 
10 Tools of Dialogue & Voice: Most novels are 50%+ dialogue, are your character’s words worthy of that? Well-crafted dialogue moves the story along, sounds authentic and in line with your characters and premise. Without strong dialogue you eliminate the connection btw the reader and the story. Learn to write as you speak and give your characters a unique, but believable, voice. 

Call #5 Tuesday, November 27th - 1:00-2:00 EST 
Plot: Does your story stall in the middle? Most writers start with a great idea but can’t see their story through to the end. Plot gives you the markers that light your path. This call builds on the Story Cycle call by teaching you how to add tension and conflict, subplots, depth, foreshadowing and flashbacks to keep your story moving to the satisfying and logical end. 

Call #6 Tuesday, December 4th - 1:00-2:00 EST 
Deconstructing a Scene: Learn the best-kept secret in writing; the key to writing any novel is to build it one scene at a time. In this call you’ll learn the essential elements of scene -- goal, obstacle, failure and reaction. And you’ll learn how to connect the scenes in a way that leaves the reader eager to turn the page. Scenes build novels.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
