This course is for fiction authors who want to find the true purpose of their story and write a compelling novel every time, so they can avoid getting lost in a plot-hole wilderness.
But it is so much more than a plotting class.
There are hundreds of plot maps in cyberspace and having one doesn’t automatically mean you will write a cohesive book. What you’re missing is a compass to help you navigate those maps.
Shaking out all the excess baggage of minor characters, subplots, truckloads of research and fascinating backstory, will reveal the critical foundation of your story. Once exposed, it’s easier to look at it objectively and see opportunities for improvement. Then, all that’s left to do is mold those ideas into an unputdownable adventure.
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve written a manuscript that needs fixing, have started and abandoned dozens of stories, or are planning the next book; by the end of this course, you will have a solid roadmap to keep your plot focused on its true north.
Now is the time to save your manuscript from the slush pile (or your recycle bin) and realise the book you dreamed of.
I am passionate about ensuring participants fully understand concepts, so provide opportunities to apply what you’ve learnt to your own story. Each lesson includes:
Sandy Vaile is a motorbike-riding daredevil who isn’t content with a story unless there are a courageous heroine and a dead body. She writes romantic-suspense for Simon & Schuster US and empowers modern writers to produce novels they can be proud of (and that get noticed by agents and publishers).
Sandy is an experienced course presenter with a decade of experience in the industry, and prides herself on providing a nurturing learning environment that enables participants to truly absorb the material and apply it to their own work.
In her spare time, Sandy composes procedures for high-risk industrial processes, judges writing competitions, runs The Fearless Novelist Facebook group, and offers coaching and critiquing services.
