What is the "Fiction Writing Basics" course? Find out here what to expect, who the course is aimed at and what you need to know to get started.
LESSON 1: PURPOSE AND BEST FORMAT
Why are you writing? Is it for therapy, education or just pure creativity? Answering this question will decide which format is best for your book.
LESSON 2: GENRE AND THE 3-ACT STRUCTURE
Which genre does your book fall into, and does the 3-Act Structure apply? Even if you don't know what it is, the chances are you've been using it.
LESSON 3: CHARACTERS
Character creation and development is a vital component to quality fiction - some say the single most important element.
LESSON 4: PREPARING TO PUBLISH
Think your book is finished and you're ready to publish? Think again. Writing is easy - now the real work begins!
