О курсе

In this course aspiring writers will be introduced to perhaps the most elemental and often the most challenging element of story: plot. We will learn what keeps it moving, how it manipulates our feelings, expectations, and desires. We will examine the choices storytellers make to snag our imaginations, drag them into a fictional world, and keep them there. We will learn how to outline and structure a plot, discuss narrative arc, pacing and reversals and reveal the inevitable surprise: connecting the beginning, middle and end....

Great information about plot and scene structure. The information about revision was entirely new to me - thank you! The exercises were good and difficult in a good way that helped me hone my writing.

The course was informative on how to build, structure and develop the plot of our own stories. It was also very helpful in guiding us through the editing process. A useful course for aspiring writers.

This is giving me a methodology and moved me more towards enriching my characters and showing the story as opposed to telling it

The course instruction helped me develop my story more clearly. I do wish that there was some review other than just by peers.

Love this resource and Brando and his colleagues. Would have enjoyed longer videos sometimes, they were always pretty short.

A good start with pressing home the key to making scenes interesting: ABDCE. A little too wide a net in the editing rubric.

Clear and concise. Instructional. The only thing that I hope is to get more examples from the course except explanations.

I liked the ABDCE formula. It directed my thoughts and ultimately enabled my story to take a more satisfying direction.

The content is interesting, but not rich enough for a course. I finished all the videos and assignments in only 2 days.

Brando was excellent in specifying the methodological way of writing stories. Thanks for the 21 point checklist!

Short, pithy descriptions; to the point advice/ suggestions with leeway to alter the structure. Worth the time.
