If you're interested in aspects of plot and story-structure, this day course will guide you towards making the scenes you write work as powerfully as possible to engage and hold your reader's attention. We'll look at published examples, deconstructing them to see how their internal dynamics made them effective - and we'll practise writing our own scenes. We'll cover areas such as pace, tension, creating mood, setting location, using dialogue and placing scenes in your story's overall structure. Getting the individual scenes right will help you grow in confidence as a writer.
A fuller description of the course, along with details of the venue and how to book, are all available on the website http://www.fictionfire.co.uk/ (where you can also see my latest Quote of Note and mini-essay about it in the Writing Inspiration section of the site).
