Would you like to write a book that no one can put down? The writing so crisp that the words jump out of the page? If this is your dream, then this course is for you.

Some books are hard to put down. The reader will be absorbed in the plot and with the characters. Award winning author L. C. Hayden will show you, step by step, how to achieve this. These simple secrets of the trade will make a big difference in your writing and in the book's success. Some of the writing techniques include showing vs. telling, how to create a great plot, how to pace yourself, how to write for your particular audience, how to use the correct words—and much, much more.

Some of the areas covered in this two week course, include—
  • How showing vs. telling enhances the writing
  • When you should tell instead of show
  • How to create a great plot
  • How to pace yourself
  • How to write for your particular audience
  • How diction affects your writing
  • How to connect with readers
  • How to make the story ring true
  • How to use characters effectively
