THE PRINCIPLES OF NONFICTION
July 7, 2019

Wrap the fact with wings. Craft better truths.


Build your understanding on the basic crafts of creative writing and create a unique piece. Using literary elements and fiction techniques, you’ll break boundaries with your storytelling skills. Blend pacing and plotting, use point of view and characterization, as well create narration with facts. This is your story, your invention, produce the best one.


SHOW AND TELL: SCENE AND SUMMARY
July 14, 2019

Pace the truth. Transport your readers somewhere else.


The practice has been known for decades. Learn the difference between the two. Use the techniques to create a remarkable piece. Showing lets the readers feel for themselves and God’s in the details. Telling provides a quick line or two to get the job done and allows the reader to move on with the next points faster. Never choose, use both—just know when to use which one.


RECREATING THE REAL: THE FIVE SENSES
July 21, 2019

Unlock possibilities. Bring your story to life.


Familiarize yourself with each of the senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste. Describing these simple details will help your writing rich, while still maintaining the imagination intact. Create a visual summary and connect them with the writing’s context. Add meaning with colors and shapes.


THE ART OF NARRATIVE ARC AND PERSPECTIVE
July 28, 2019

Lead your readers. Connect the red dot.


Without a structured shape, a story will not make sense. Narrative arcs create sequence in plot, otherwise it’s just one boring occurrence after another without a clear connection. Mold facts into a coherent tale, learn how to create sequence and consequence of your piece. Create outline to build momentum and rise them to a crescendo.
