Unsagging your Middles with Becky Martinez

Plot-Structure Unsagging your Middles with Becky Martinez

This was a fabulous class! Becky provided thoughtful, expert advice and ideas that are easily incorporated into a writing routine. I am all about practical and uncomplicated, yet valuable--this class fit the bill perfectly. Thank you!
Some of the information was very helpful, but I wished there was more practical, specific advice that was suspense-specific. The instructor offered personalized feedback, which was nice, but directly to her, so there was no sense of a classroom or conversation. I learn a lot from what other students submit and their feedback, so that aspect missing in this class had a big effect. There were a lot of lessons covering many topics of writing, but I found myself a little disappointed in this particular class.
Becky really helped me. She gave great and useful feedback =) I understood pitches a lot better than I have ever before.
Such a valuable class! The feedback was enlightening, and my pitch is so much better because of it. Awesome!
So very glad I took this class. The feedback was excellent and I finally feel confident in my pitch. I highly recommend the class and Becky as an instructor!
This was an excellent event to help get ready for the Sweetheart Pitchfest! Becky did a great job with constructive feedback!
I am very glad I took this class! It was wonderful to receive feedback on my pitch as well as my classmates. Without a doubt, my pitch is stronger and more focused than if I had gone it alone. Thank you, Becky! I'll be back for another class soon!
Mind blowing review on your log lines for pitches! She gave thoughtful and positive feedback in a timely fashion. I would recommend this course to anybody, and everybody.
For me, the information and examples shared in the lectures were enlightening and thought-provoking. Glad I attended and would take another class with Becky any time.
Becky shared so much information. I learned a lot about romantic suspense and I can't wait to go back and work on my story idea. Great class.
The lecture content was very good, and useful for me. I learned new information which spurred me to improve some aspects of the plot I had in mind for my next project. I was. however, disappointed by the lack of feedback on the homework. I'm not sure if Becky even saw them, as she mentioned technical difficulties a couple of times. A few teacher comments/insights here and there would have made this a 5/5.
The information was really robust and plentiful. So much so that I found it a bit hard to keep up with, but I definitely learned things! However, I signed up for the class because I was under the impression there would be regular feedback on the exercises we posted (like a class) not paragraphs of feedback, but something. It helps me with motivation, and to know I’m on the right track as I go, but after my introduction post, there was nothing. If I knew we’d be on our own, I would’ve just purchased a book to go through solo. At the end there was an invitation to send some writing to her, but it was a bit too little, too late for me. So information and content was a 5, class experience a not 5, sadly.
I enjoyed this class immensely and have been able to build a rough outline of my next book based on the lessons. The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of was a fuller discussion of red herrings and how and when to bring them in, how to use them to confuse the reader and how they might impact the turn of events for a mystery. There was some discussion of this, but not quite enough to really satisfy me.
Very much enjoyed the course! Just like with all courses savvyauthors has to offer, this one was exceptional!
I went from one character and a desire to write a book about that character to a full blown, planned out plot, ready to sit down and write the book. Great class! Thanks, Becky.
This is a good class. Becky shared important information in her lectures, and she gave us all individual feedback three times.
I learned so much from this class. Becky is a wonderful teacher. I feel much more comfortable with crafting a pitch thanks to Becky's spot-on suggestions.
Becky tried to focus on the good points of my pitch and give me feedback she thought would help sharpen the focus.
Super helpful! Thanks, Becky. I’ll not only use the pitches at the Savvy pitchfest but also at the agents and editors conference coming up in a week or so.
The event was challenging, writing pitches isn't easy. Becky gave a lot of good information and personal attention. I'm very appreciative and learned a lot!
