In Level Up Your Fiction Writing, we’ve identified 7 key storytelling skills that will have the most direct, immediate, and noticeable impact on your fiction writing (protagonists, antagonists, settings, action scenes, juxtaposition, chapter breaks, and paragraph breaks).
These 7 skills will put you on the fast track toward substantial improvement of your creative writing skills that you will be able to see on the page and feel in the confidence of your words.
