Write a Great Story

First Sentence to Last…

Self-directed program available now!
Start today!

Regardless of what you’re writing–a memory, a family history, a memoir, a collection of stories, a book of any kind–you want your text to be the absolute best it can be.

You want to intrigue the reader with your title. You seek to capture her attention with your first sentence. You want your story to have continuity and not lose energy in the middle. You long to have your story linger in the reader’s mind long after he’s read the last sentence.

In addition to learning how to do just that, we’ll take a look at all parts of a book and the purpose of each. Items such as copyright (not copywrite), dedications, acknowledgments, prologues, epilogues, and such. You may ask, “Why do I need to know those things when I’m just writing stories?” Good question. Your series of stories may well turn into a book, and this is good information to have. If nothing else, you’ll be a more informed reader, understand, and possibly, appreciate more the job of each part of the book you’re consuming.Write_a_Great_Story_B
