This class is a shorter version of Mary's popular online class, "Your Book Starts Here." Learn a simple template that many professional writers use to build a strong structure of a novel, memoir, or nonfiction book via storyboard brainstorming. Great for all stages, from writers just starting a book project to those with a work-in-progress. 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 "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. Includes weekly feedback on your writing, lessons via text and video, great articles by famous writers, and biweekly private coaching from Mary.
