Two week intensive: Better, Stronger, More Emotional—the Rule of Six at Work
You’ve heard her talk about it. Maybe seen a quick presentation on it. What is the Rule of Six?
It’s all about going beyond the first, second, third thoughts, all the way to the sixth thought you have in order to find something unique and new that hasn’t been done before. Capitalize on this technique marketing gurus have used for years to find the “thought not thought of yet” and avoid duplicating a plot line, character quirk or other idea already out there (that you may have seen subconsciously).
Then learn how to use this technique to take your writing deeper and draw out more emotion, more conflict…more of everything! It’s truly astounding when you see it in action. With this interactive class, Shirley Jump will show you how to use “Shirley’s Rule of Six” for everything from plot to word choice.
The result? More powerful writing that has that unique touch editors today are looking to buy.
