ONLINE Book Bones
Structure is key to writing a novel. Whether the three-act structure, five-act structure, Hero’s Journey, Virgin’s promise, Transtheortical Model, Stages of Grief, or Anatomy of Story appeal to you, come prepared to examine the differences among novel skeletons and see which can inform your manuscript. Come with a few scenes and an outline, or a finished novel to reverse-engineer, and use this course to come away with an initial scene-by-scene outline to use as a basis for writing.
