    Don’t let the plotting process get you down.
    It can seem like a major undertaking, but once you figure out what works best for you, you can let the real author in your come out and get down to plotting any type of story – from romance to thriller to fantasy, from short stories to a long series tough endeavor.

    Get the basics of different ways to plot your book and start to come up with what is necessary to get all the way through your plot.
    • Where should you start?
    • How should you start?
    • Do you need to outline everything?
    • What if you would rather not plot at all?
    We’ll use the Plotting Circle to get your story into shape, whether you normally outline your book or if you would rather let the characters to do the plotting or even if you want to do as little plotting as possible.

    • How do you know if you’re going in the right direction with your plot?
    • What about subplots?
    • What do you need to know about how to end your book?
    • What if you’re writing a series and need to leave things undone?
    This class looks at the overall book and how to make certain you don’t shortchange your readers but that you also leave some questions for the next go-round. We’ll also look at ways to make certain all the plotting elements are in place in your storyline and get an introduction to building a story board.

    We’ll go from coming up with a great beginning all the way to writing THE END for your plot.

    I really enjoy Becky's classes. I find her supportive and critical of my homework assignments. Becky explains things in a way I can understand. I look forward to "attending" more of her classes.

    Becky Martinez's course on writing got me started and took me from zero knowledge to confidence in my plotting and development. Her character sheets are what I use for EVERY character--still. It forms the basis of my story bible.
