10-Month First Draft – Novel & Script

It is a fluid and flexible process where you follow a step-by-step process where you ground your story in classic story structure in such a way that allows your creativity and imagination to flourish. By the end of this course, you will have a clear idea of the story you want to write, the characters you want to write about and the underlining theme.
