At the end of the workshop, you’ll create a synopsis for your book suitable for submission to a publisher or to a film company, and you’ll have a good start on your own working outline so that you can begin drafting the novel scene by scene

Creating a story is like putting a puzzle together, one with missing or misleading pieces. In this course, you’ll learn how to recognize what pieces of your story you have (such as characters, scenes, or conflicts), determine what pieces are still missing, and fashion the pieces you need.

Dave will show you how to create imaginative settings that can give birth to incredible societies and characters, plus how to take those characters’ cores and generate enthralling conflicts for your plot. You’ll also learn how to brainstorm and outline a bestselling novel using several different systems for brainstorming, including the Mountain Peak Method, Snowflake Method, 321 Method, and more.

Nearly a hundred of David Farland’s past students have gone on to become bestsellers, including eight who have hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
