Mastering Story Structure: The smarter way to work on your novel
Have you got a great idea for a story? Not sure how to go about completing your 80000 word manuscript? Don’t want to spend decades working on your novel?
If you have always wanted to create memorable characters and pen a riveting story brimming with external and internal conflict, you need to master the story structure.
Cut down hours (in some cases years) of unproductive work on your manuscript by learning to plot gripping yarns that will gain the attention of agents/publishers and satisfy readers. Learn to write an effective outline which will guide you in your story telling efforts without curbing your creativity.
Story Structure is all about working smart and is equally beneficial for beginning and advanced practitioners of the craft. Sign up for Mastering Story Structure Workshop with award winning author Nikesh Murali.
In 6 intense hours of lectures and hands on exercises, learn to create an external and internal story arc and generate a plot outline which will form a strong foundation for your novel.
