Exploring Our Modules

Week One – Ideas and Intros

All stories start in the same place: with an idea. This week, we will develop tools to
generate story ideas that ignite the creative spark.

Week Two – Character

Most stories rely on characters to bring a reader through the tale. What makes a good
character? How are they built? What do they want? This week will focus on crafting the
types of memorable characters that make a story shine.

Week Three – Setting

Where a story takes place is often a major piece of the puzzle. Setting is simply more than
what’s around the characters, it is a subtle way to inform the larger story. This week, we
will develop ways to maximize the impact of your setting.

Week Four – Dialogue

Dialogue helps bring our characters to life. How they speak and what they say can reveal
so much. This week will help you craft dialogue so that the language jumps off the page
and into the ears of your readers.

Week Five – Scenes

A scene is what happens when characters, dialogue, and setting meet action. What makes
a good scene? How does it unfold? This week, we will use our tools to build memorable
moments to make your story shine.

Week Six – Structure

What does a full story look like? How is it built? This week, we will look at a basic 5-point structure
to help build your story and put all of these elements together into one stunning story.
