Your story isn’t catching readers attention, beta feedback may not reflect what you wanted to convey, someone wrote a book like yours and their version worked so why not yours? How to see where success emerges and where to apply it can come from reading like a writer. Sure, picking up a book and getting lost in the fantasy is great, but when you reach the end there are questions you can ask yourself to deep dive into how the story worked for you and how it didn’t.

These insights can help steer you in the direction to figuring out your style and finding ways to invigorate your own storytelling. Let’s talk about shock factors, hooking, emotional investment, and story jerks. Give examples and have discussions around the things you love and how do you apply them to your writing.

I didn't get to participate due to other commitments, but I've since gone through the assignments and it is great information.
Really enjoyed your class. Landra Graf showed me again why it's so important to read when you write. She also gave me good ideas as to how to improve my writing by analyzing books that I've enjoyed reading and still think of them with fondness. Looking for hooks, humor, fear, tears, etc. helped me to more accurately pinpoint WHY I like a book - or a movie, for that matter. Thank you very much.
Landra Graf's Mini Intensive presentation, Reading Like a Writer, has provided me with ways to analysis the books I love and ones in the genre I write in. With her guidelines, I can now compare my WIP to see if I am hitting the marks I want to incorporate.
