Plotting masterclass with Natasha Lester

$80.00

Plot is so much more than just story arcs and plot points. It should be driven by character, and should help to create an emotional connection between the reader and the story. This plotting masterclass is hands-on and practical, and based on techniques Natasha uses in her bestselling novels. 

We’ll look at:

  • How plotting should enhance the emotional connection between the reader and the characters
  • How to make sure that your character motivations are in the book and not just in your head
  • What stakes are, why they’re important and how to focus your scenes on what’s at stake for your characters
  • The two levels of plot, from the structural level down to the scene level
  • How you can go deeper, how you can push yourself and your characters that little bit harder, to really transform your story
  • The key plot points your story should have, including the inciting incident, turning points, midpoint reversal and climax
  • We’ll cover suspense and pacing as well

As a result of attending the workshop, you’ll have all the tools you need to write a book that will keep readers up until well past their bedtimes!
