Writing is more than stringing together description so lovely it makes angels weep.
What makes the difference between the meh and the magnificent? Why do some books hook while others collect dust?
What's that certain je ne sais quoi that makes some stories defy all odds and skyrocket to success? Conversely, why do some books have the cover, the ads, the promotion, and yet fail to ever ignite?
While there's no magic formula that will guarantee addiction to our fiction, there ARE some common ingredients to stories readers can't put down. These 'secret' ingredients aren't exactly secret, but they are very commonly overlooked, underestimated, and ignored.
In fact, these 'secret' ingredients are SO overlooked that I'd wager it's why the majority of novels fail to sell more than 500 copies.
Writers forget why readers read, what readers want, and serve filler instead of fire.
This class will challenge everything you think you know about what makes a good story. And since these are 'secret' ingredients, I'll see you in class to explain what they are and how to use them like a PRO.
