Be Agile!
Agile Writers combines the lessons of Myth, Storytelling, Psychology, and a little project management to create a 6-month program to finish your first draft. This method was used to SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE 19 FIRST DRAFT NOVELS THIS YEAR. Yours could be next!
Agile Writers is not just a method of creating a first draft novel in 6 months, it's also a peer-supported writing and publishing workshop.
Agile Writers is guided by the writings of
Joseph Campbell (“The Hero With A Thousand Faces”)
Christopher Vogler (“The Writer’s Journey”)
Michael Hague (“Writing Screenplays That Sell”)
Christopher Booker (“The Seven Basic Plots”)
Allison & Goethals (“Heroes – What They Do & Why We Need Them”)
What you'll learn:
The Elements of a Great Story
How to Write Your Story in Bite-Sized Chunks
What Makes a Great Hero
Which Characters to Add to Your Story
What Are the Major Turning Points in a Great Story
How to Deal With Pacing
