Free Prewriting Course Update

Hello writers.

I’ve added two new components to the prewriting mini-course.

  • Using Images to Add a Visual Element to Your Prewriting
  • Conversing with Your Characters

Here’s the link…https://wordinventions.blog/prewriting-course/

In the next week, all components will be assembled in a Teachable course.

Prewriting Course Components

Greetings.

I’ve been sharing components of my prewriting mini-course and will continue to add to this page. So far, I have posted the ‘using a concept list’ video, with two samples, and a 23-point ‘James Patterson on outlining’ PDF.

I will be combining them all with additional resources in my Teachable course, but for now, if you’re interested…

What is a ‘concept list’ and how might it help me as a writer?

Greetings, fellow writers.

I will be sharing various resources here from my mini-course on prewriting.

Here is my concept list with a ‘surprise/unexpected/amazement’ theme, along with a video of how it might be used to develop a story.

I hope it helps. Feel free to pass along this post to writer friends.

And, let me know if…

  1. you would like me to create other concept lists that might be helpful to you.
  2. you’re interested in the free prewriting mini-course.
