Build a fully developed, multi-layered story from the ground up! Writing a story is not that much different than building a house. Both require some brainstorming (to provide a clear vision), a blueprint or outline (to lay a solid foundation upon which that vision can be built), building or drafting (to make the vision a reality), and decorating or revising (to polish the masterpiece and make it presentable to the public).

Award-winning author Karen S. Wiesner is your host for this tutorial. Many of you know Karen as the author of First Draft in 30 Days, From First Draft to Finished Novel {A Writer's Guide to Cohesive Story Building}, and Writing the Fiction Series: The Complete Guide for Novels and Novellas, all available from Writer's Digest Books.

In this tutorial, she talks about some of the things detailed in From First Draft to Finished Novel. Specifically, she takes you through the process of using a Story Plan Checklist in order to build cohesiveness into your novel. Additionally, this checklist can be used to easily create a synopsis!

Karen's revolutionary system is both versatile and customizable, capable of being modified to fit any writer's approach and style, and can be used for every single genre of fiction, no matter how short or long.

This 60-minute tutorial video gives writers everything they need to:

  • Learn how to maximize the layering process of building a story from the foundation up
