    • Characters
    • Structure
    • Plotting
    Every novel begins with a concept. Taking that concept all the way through to a workable idea for a novel takes work. Even before you begin working on fleshing out characters, developing a plot, building the world of your story, you must have a robust concept for the story. In this course, you will learn how to turn your basic idea into a solid story arc you can use to build the rest of your story.

    Topics Include:
    • Pre-Writing: What it is, and What it means to you
    • Finding story ideas
    • The difference between a story idea and a story concept
    • Shaking hands with your protagonist
    • A first look at your fictional world
    • The twenty-five word bridge between idea and novel: Creating a story concept or premise
    • Creating a Story Arc
    Homework assignments will guide you through the process. You will receive feedback from your instructor at each stage.
