How to Write Fiction: A Workshop on Creating Story Arcs for Novels
You might know how to write a scene, but what about story or plot arcs? How do you tie in those larger story elements within the book while also working on the other parts of the scenes? How do you plan those? How do you include more than just the minimuma scene needs without going overboard with exposition on your larger-than-a-single-scene-level conflicts?
This episode was inspired by a great question in the forums after How to Keep Your Scenes on Target.
Download the free workshop, print (or save ink and answer the questions with pen in a notebook) and get to writing!
