Are you one of those people who have thought, "I'd like to write a book someday, but I don't know where to start"? If yes, then this is the course for you. All you need is to open yourself up and allow your ideas to flow, plus a writing implement to capture those ideas.

You may have hesitated to start writing your story before because of confusion about what to say, where to start writing, and how to shape your ideas. That should no longer be an issue. Let's start by saying that there is no wrong way to write. While there are lots of tools to help with writing, as well as a plethora of methods and books, you should focus on what works for you. Use whatever method of writing is comfortable, motivating, and inspiring. Make your writing routine as simple and as convenient as you can.

However, there are a few key elements of good storytelling to learn that help the writer develop the story and meet the expectations of the reader. A good story also contains strong character development. The protagonist is the key to every story-who your protagonist is, what the protagonist wants, and the enemy the protagonist is fighting against. It is important to create a character that you want to get to know and look forward to writing-a character that your audience will care about what happens to him or her. Writing interesting characters is half the battle, which is won by learning how to get to know your character.

Creative Writing 101 combines teaching the key elements of storytelling with developing the protagonist. Once you understand who this character is and how to make sure you've included the key story elements, you are well on your way to writing that book you have been squelching.

Develop 10-15 pages of ideas during this crucial course!

This course is open to anyone interested in creative writing. Nancy Ellen Dodd will be available to answer all of your questions. No question goes unanswered! See syllabus here »
