Boring beginnings?  Sagging middles?  Flat endings?

Both plotters and pantsers need well-structured stories.  Plotting with panache—confidence, flamboyance, courage—will cure what ails your story.  Learn the plotting secrets that keep readers turning pages and preventing reviewers from using deadly adjectives—boring, sagging, flat—to describe your masterpiece.

We will analyze the structure of JAWS (#1) and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Please view these movies if you haven’t seen them.
