Based upon the author's successful seminars, How to Write A Story is geared towards younger writers, but may be successfully adapted for older writers. Eight lessons will explain the fundamentals of writing fiction (enjoyably!) while exercises reinforce what has been taught and worksheets help with assess progress. Students are taught a 3-step story model, where there is a situation involving a character with a problem, an objective, and obstacles over which this character seeks to triumph. Exercises help strengthen the imagination, encourage revisions, reinforce elements of writing, and require original writing. 80 pages, softcover and spiral-bound. Answers included.
