    Writing a book can be like running a race – you need to get off to a quick start, keep up a good pace through the middle and then end with a strong finish. Get practical ideas on how to draw readers into your work from the first paragraph, then keep them reading through the middle and finish the book wanting to pick up your next novel.

    This class takes you from beginning to end and looks at how to keep that middle from sagging. Learn small steps you can take to keep the plot moving, and then how you can move into an ending that wraps up the loose ends. We’ll look at first chapters, how to build suspense and how to deal with the problem of too much back story. We’ll learn about hooks and how to use them to keep the plot moving. From sentence structure to chapter lengths, we’ll study how to keep the plot moving.

    As we finish we’ll also look at ways to keep the readers wanting to come back for your ext entry, if you are writing a series. From beginning to end, this class can help.
