When a writer begins to plot out or "prance" a book, they must first think of the "Style" of writing they want to do.  Whether it's first person narrative, third person, or expository, a writer has to determine their best craft.  Once you determine what you want to write, you can then determine the characteristics of that style to make sure that you cover those in what you write.  This segment covers how to write and how to inspire you to create content that is sellable in todays marketplace.

In this segment we talk about what the difference is between a writer who plots or prances.  We give you real applicable tools to outline your work.  We also discuss character development.  For first time authors, my suggestions would be to write your characters down, including the way they appear to you.  Then write characteristics of those characters.  Then write events you could see those characters engaging in.  Finally begin to write obstacles they might face, or misunderstandings they might encounter.  This segment also covers editing and reviews.
