September Advanced Depth
Follows the Depth in Writing workshop and shows you many more ways to grab a reader and get them down into your story.
Learn even more ways to keep your readers from ever leaving your stories.
Requirement: You must have already taken the Depth Online Workshop to take this one. This advanced workshop takes off where the Depth workshop ended.
And here are just some of the things we are going to cover in this workshop.
--- Shortcuts of depth.
--- How to set character mood to help depth.
--- Character voice and character attitude in creating depth.
--- Depth with tags of all sorts, including character tags and setting tags.
--- Depth increased by the correct use of pacing.
--- Depth killers to avoid. Things that will knock readers out of books faster than anything, such as too many names for the same character (among many other killer problems).
And so much more.
This workshop will also talk regularly about reader expectations in stories.
If you want to know what levels are possible to take your writing, this is the workshop for you.
It will be an eye-opening workshop, we promise.
