Many writers have told me they have all the ideas, but don’t know how to put them together into a story plot. In this course, I will give you a step-by-step walkthrough of how to plan and structure a story, which you can use again and again to keep writing new, unique stories.

Structure And Plot Your Own Story.

  • Brainstorm ideas for new stories.

  • Overcome writer's block.

  • Learn how to structure a story.

  • Improve finished stories.

Use This Course as an Essential Tool in Your Writing Process.

I designed this course to be a practical guide, rather than a simple list of techniques that may be difficult to understand or implement in your writing. This course can not only massively benefit those of you who are new to writing fiction, but also those who already have prior experience. Whether you are writing a new story, or developing a work-in-progress, this course is for you.

While you begin to plan and write your own unique story, I will be working alongside you, giving you clear examples. You may be struggling with writer’s block, lacking confidence in your writing, or having issues with understanding how to plot out your story. Whatever it is, this course is guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing!

Content and Overview.

This course contains easy-to-follow videos explaining each step of what is usually a complex writing process, as well as downloadable summary documents for you to use as tools in future projects. It provides your creative ideas with a methodical structure to help you plan and outline a full story from the ground up.

In this course, I will show you exactly what you need to include in your story plan, using your own ideas. You will then learn how to put all this information together into a coherent structure, ensuring that you reveal each story event in the correct order. Finally, you will have the opportunity to edit your ideas and plot them in a way that suits you.

By the end of this course, you will have a complete story structure, which you can then use to write creatively without having to worry about the ‘rules’ of writing.

This course lays the foundations of a story. If you would like to build on this to add more depth, for example by including elements of mystery or romance, then look out for my future courses!

Who this course is for:

  • New writers who don't know where to start.
  • Experienced writers looking to improve their skills.

When I was younger, I found that writing seemed like a big, daunting task. There is so much conflicting information available, and a lot of missing concepts. I dedicated myself to studying hundreds of different stories, including books, movies and TV shows. I combined all this knowledge to reach a level of understanding where I am able to help others.

Writing a story doesn't have to be quite so complicated after all.
