This photo below is from the dinner after our recent 10-Month Novel and Script course. Everyone was on a real high after completing the first draft of their story. It is a huge achievement and everyone could not believe how far they had come on this profound journey. Below are some testimonials from the writers in the class. And below the testimonials are some of the key steps, tools and techniques people applied during the course.
“I’ve had this concept for a novel rattling around in my head for 10 years, but have never got far past Chapter 3. This course is the first time I’ve had the focus and shown a structure that has propelled my story idea into a fully-fledged first draft, revealing to me along the way not only what my story is about, but also how to build a creative connection between the story and the structure and the value of melding both the creative process and the story architecture upon which it rests. The result, a story infused with life, excitement and energy.” Clare Guthrie, First Draft Live 2016
