Learn a simple template that many professional writers use to build a strong structure of a novel, memoir, or nonfiction book—via storyboard brainstorming. Via the storyboard, you'll immediately find which holes need filling, organize your research, and strengthen weak plots and character arcs. You'll also get to know what your book is really about, and what to include and what to leave out (you may have more than one book here!).

We'll first practice building our storyboard from "islands," or snippets of writing that aren't yet in sequence, then look at the inner and outer story balance to feed these islands into chapters. Good for those who've constructed a draft but stuck on whether it works, new writers just starting with an idea and some free writing, or anyone in between.
