About This Course
In this lively and fun course, author and mentor Steve Alcorn shows you how to achieve success.
Perhaps you’ve started already on your novel and have stalled out with “writer’s block.” Don’t worry – we’ll help you bust the block and get you writing again. Or maybe you’ve finished your manuscript and are shocked to find it simply lacks the pizzazz that’ll put it on the bestseller list. No problem – we’ll help you polish your manuscript ’til it shines!
Here’s what will be covered in this course:
Master Point of View
Get inside the heads of your characters and narrators by conveying their unique perspective. Learn to limit the scope of what each character sees and define the world for your reader. Using “Point of View,” you can create horizons and funnel your readers’ attention where you want it to be.
Use Dialogue that Engages
Not all dialogue is created equal. In this online course, you’ll learn how to create cracking dialogue that can’t be ignored. Here, you’ll use dialogue to define character traits and perspectives. You’ll also craft unique and definitive voices to match each persona.
Create Conflict, Mystery & Suspense
Unanswered questions are what keep readers interested. This section will show you how to develop lucid complexity, strategic foreshadowing, and fascinating relationships to entice readers to keep turning the pages.
Develop Structure and Pacing
Learn to save countless hours of revision by outlining plot points in the beginning. Write your novel using the tried and true “Three Act Structure” to control pacing and plot. The Three Act Structure gives your novel a polished and professional appeal, and you’ll learn how to use it properly.
Be Your Own Editor
If you want your book to be taken seriously, you need a clean, compelling, error-free manuscript. This section will help you turn your draft into a polished and professional manuscript that agents are keen to read.
These days it’s not enough just to complete a novel. Every author needs a platform to sell their story. This section will outline the pros and cons of agents, and self-publishing/self-promotion, so you can choose the path that’s best for you.
