Write Killer Sentences: Finding and Honing your Style
Writers get so busy nailing down characters and plot that we often forget about the humble sentence. Your story may be great, but do your sentences sing, engage, and keep tension alive? Do you and your characters have a bold, noticeable voice on the page that engages readers?
This OnDemand webinar teaches the viewer to transform serviceable sentences into arresting prose and imagery that does more than just tell a great story. Jordan Rosenfeld explores voice and tone, how to convey emotion and theme with subtlety, explore a variety of writing styles, and pin down what it means to create a writing style. She discusses how to cut the clutter from your prose and how to avoid falling into melodrama. Jordan also teases apart metaphor and simile and plays with the sound of words and useful literary devices for prose that wows instead of whimpers.
Jordan Rosenfeld is author of the novels Women in Red, Forged in Grace and six books on the craft of writing, most recently How to Write a Page-Turner, the bestselling Make a Scene, Writing the Intimate Character, A Writer’s Guide to Persistence, Writing Deep Scenes and Write Free. Her freelance articles and essays have been published in hundreds of publications, including: The Atlantic, The New York Times, Scientific American, Writer’s Digest Magazine, The Washington Post, and many more.
