You know the feeling – when you start a book and immediately suspend disbelief to fall into the story world. As authors, we know that this isn’t easy to do. It takes more than a good scene. It takes a maestro of craft to pull it off.

If you’re past problems with POV, character development and stage direction, this class will help you understand the subtle nuances that can be the difference between a ‘good writer’ and a popular author.

Here are just a few of the points we’ll be covering:
  • Anchor in Deep POV
  • Say it once, say it well
  • Triple-duty descriptions
  • Get rid of Same old/same old body language
  • Dialog tags – who needs them?
  • Write tight
  • Tell us what we don’t know
  • Trust your reader
  • Backstory slivers – no dumps here!
  • Fully rounded characters

One of the most useful classes I've taken at Savvy and that's saying a lot. There are lots of good classes on the basics, but Laura really helped me take my book to the next level. Thank you!
The instructor feedback, class notes/lessons were of tremendous craft reference value to improve one's writing and revising. I gained a tremendous amount of information, even attained a higher level of writing sophistication thanks to attending this class. Impressive instructor, excellent, useful class.
