Boost your #writing skills with a #writingworkshop - Take these online courses at your own pace. #creativewriting and #KidLit classes

Bring your writing career to the next level! Take a self-paced video writing class with Chris Eboch, the author of over 100 books for children and two dozen novels for adults written as Kris Bock. Chris has led popular writing workshops around the world.

Advanced Plotting—Keep Those Pages Turning

Learn advanced techniques that will make a decent plot dynamic. Understand the promise of your first chapter. Then start with a “grab you by the throat” opening. Once you’ve caught the reader’s attention, you’ll want to pack the plot full. But how do you make sure you’ve done that? Check out these tools to analyze your plot. Once your plot is strong, learn techniques to maximize your pacing, including cliffhanger chapter endings to drive the story forward. Novelists will benefit from these insights, whether you are just starting out or have years of experience. Many techniques work for memoires, nonfiction, and even picture books too!

Take this online course at your own pace. It includes six videos plus handouts with notes and more resources for $100. You can hire me to work with you one-on-one for an additional fee. Get Advanced Plotting here.
