This class focuses specifically on the middle of your story, the bulk of the action that takes place after the set-up and builds up until you reach your “disembarking point” and the book’s ending.

  • How do you crank up conflict and emotion without writing yourself into a corner?
  • How do you fulfill the promise of your beginning (and your blurb), to deliver the book you’ve promised readers?
  • How do you keep readers emotionally engaged without having to use tricks and red herrings to make sure those pages keep turning?

Whatever your process—from highly detailed outlines to seat-of-your-pants writing, and everything in between—this class will help you build a framework for a successful, satisfying book. We will map out the high points (and low points) of the middle of your book. We will discuss how your “midpoint” is not exactly in the middle, nor does it indicate one moment in time. And we’ll help you decide precisely how to shake up the world you’ve created (so you can fix it in time for the end).
Class Format
Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.

Stuck In The Middle describes me during the writing process for most of my books. Tere's class gave me some very effective tools for analyzing and dealing with this problem that I feel will stand me in good stead going forward.
