The stakes have never been higher.
With the Internet, Netflix, HBO, Prime, movies, news, everything at reader’s fingertips, who cares has never been more important.
Sure, you have put your heart, soul, and every drop of blood into your characters and the story they have to tell. You have created a compelling plot where characters run a gauntlet of obstacles. You have edited, deep edited. Every word sings.
But you are still getting critique partners saying, “I don’t get it.” Worse, you are getting those form rejections or those just-didn’t-care-enough responses.
Simple truth is, it has never been so important to grab a reader’s attention and not let go.
But while these rejections and questions can feel overwhelmed, don’t look at it as an insurmountable mountain. You too can grab your readers, keep them up late at night, have them begging for your next story.
You just gotta up the stakes and make readers care.
And Stacking the Stakes is here.
In this two-week intensive, we’ll discover ways to get your readers caring about your characters, your story and every single page until the very end. Full of easy-to-read lectures, hands-on assignments, and plenty of opportunities for class and instructor interaction, Stack the Stakes will take a languishing story from plodding too powerful.
Wow, that’s a lot in two-weeks, but it’s not all. With more than seven get-you-started assignments and opportunities to share your work, immediate, personalized feedback will offer even more assignments, more opportunities, more chances to grow your work from where you are rather than where-a-class-expects-you-to be. So, take a chance because the stakes have never been so important.
