Craft Courses First…
I have a workshop curriculum that has been posted for a while, but since we are doing a half-price sale right now for everything on Teachable (see last post for details), I thought I would revamp the curriculum some and help writers decide what class to take next.
Today I will do the foundation courses for craft. Tomorrow I’ll update the foundation courses for publishing, genre, and attitude.
And the numbers are my suggestions on the order to take these workshops because many of them build on others. (Two types of workshops are included. Regular and Classic. It is a regular workshop offered monthly unless noted as Classic. At some point I will add in all the lectures and Pop-ups. That could get real interesting.)
FOUNDATION COURSES FOR CRAFT
2 Advanced Depth (Depth required)
3… Writing into the Dark (Depth required)
4 Teams (Depth suggested to help)
5… Killing the Critical Voice
6 Research (Depth #3) (Classic workshop. Depth required)
7… Information Flow (Depth required)
9… Writing with Speed (Depth required)
10 Pacing (Classic workshop)
11… Writing with Emotion
12… How to Use Tags in Fiction Writing (Classic Workshop. Depth required)
13… How to Study (Classic Workshop)
14 Secondary Plot Lines (Classic Workshop)
15 Advanced Character and Dialogue (Classic Workshop)
16 Point of View (Classic Workshop. Depth suggested)
17 Author Voice (Classic Workshop. Depth suggested strongly, as well as Advanced Depth)
18 Cliffhanger (Classic workshop)
19 Plotting with Depth (Classic Workshop. Depth required)
20 Novel Structure (Classic Workshop)
These twenty workshops will jump you so far ahead in your writing skills, you won’t be able to see it, but your friends and readers will. And I know, interesting that Teams workshop is the 4th most important, but trust me, it is a foundation course and important.
Don’t worry about the Advanced Character title in the Dialog workshop. It was just a name that got stuck on it to help people understand it.
One way to take all these courses at a reduced price is to sign up for the lifetime subscription to workshops. All of these workshops, classic and regular are in the subscription.
MORE CRAFT-FOCUSED COURSES (Depth suggested for all of them except Ideas)
Character Voice (classic workshop)
Adding Suspense (classic workshop)
Ideas (classic workshop)
Character Development (classic workshop)
Expectations (classic workshop)
Writing in Series (classic workshop)
Writing Short Stories
No suggested order on these, but the order above would do. Tomorrow I will list the genres and the publishing workshops.
Remember, right now all of these are half price on Teachable.
