    Writing a book is not as easy as just saying that is what you want to do but given some thought and a little bit of time, you can begin to write a book, and lots more after that first one. This class can help beginning writers and even intermediate writers move from their initial story idea to developing characters, setting and plot and then learn what it takes to begin writing their book. Among the topics we will cover in class:
    What do you need to know to take your story and idea and turn it into a short story, novella or novel? How can you take those vague ideas and turn them into actual stories? We’ll see what you can do to create characters, setting and the beginnings of a plot. We will also look at how to take plot points and turn the story line into a cohesive plot that moves along in a logical fashion with plenty of action and internal reaction.

    Then we’ll work on bringing those plot points to life with realistic scenes featuring dialogue, description and plenty of action.
