Description

Fiction writers,

Whether you're writing for enjoyment or seriously considering a career of authorship, this class is especially for you. We all can use some different tips and tricks on how to make our writing better. I'll tell you how.

In my own experience, I've written story after story, with the belief that it's the greatest thing ever. While they've been pretty good in itself (mainly because of plot), my pitfall was the narrative barriers that created a distance between my readers and the story. The overuse of adjectives and adverbs, the structuring of my sentences, and the lack of imaginative language, (using cliche's, not enough of the 5 senses, and no vocabulary expansion) I hate to admit but, my work was sub-par; I was writing in shallow point of view way too much, where the reader knows what the character feels, but doesn't experience the feeling. It's that old teaching of the "show, don't tell" that quickly became frustrating and tiring for me.

Eventually, I found myself asking, 'how can I replace the bland tellings with an emotional experience?' and that's when I discovered and implemented the Deep Point of View Method.

Because it has worked for me, I want to extend to you my knowledge by offering this unique, one-subject, creative writing class of the Deep Point of View method. It's a class that shows you how the writer can immerse the reader in the story; knowing the difference between being TOLD what the character is feeling and FEELING what the character is feeling.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • What Deep POV Method is
  • The difference between shallow point of view and deep point of view and it's effects
  • Sentence restructuring
  • Using Prose and Pacing for your story
  • Effectively using the five senses to show readers the experience rather than telling
  • Eliminating filler words, and
  • Writing Vivid Dialogue
  • Other tips and tricks include the basics of writing a novel, formatting, editing, proofreading, and writing a synopsis


What's also included in this class is a copy of my newest novel, Guide Me Home, personally signed by me, Lunch and Materials, as well as a bonus feedback session of your most current work.

If you've been tired of writing in a way that doesn't capture your readers, it's now time to change that for you and your readers benefit. No more lazy, shallow, emotionless writing. Take advanatage of learning a new way of fiction writing and see your work go from "Ehh, it's ok" to "WOW!! What a story."
