After eight years of developmental editing manuscript after manuscript, helping authors grow their stories and reach their potential, book editor Katie McCoach has discovered the 4 key elements that make up a compelling character narrative.

Many of us have heard of Deb Dixon’s GMC (Goal, Motive, Conflict) method, which is a great guideline for crafting strong characters, but it leaves out two key elements that Katie has found to be essential in writing a story that grips readers from the start and never lets them go: flaw & stakes.

Isn’t it about time you write a Good Manuscript for F’s Sake?!

In this workshop, Katie will take readers through the four key story elements (Goal, Motive, Flaw, Stakes) by diving into what each elements means, why they are so essential to your story, and providing worksheets and exercises that will help you reach the core of each element so all four work in tandem to create your best story yet.

This workshop is helpful for writers in any stage of the process: those just starting their WIP, those who are outlining (even pantsers!), or those who have a fully-finished draft.
