with Carol Hughes

Enrollment Information at http://www.occrwa.org/onlineclassApril10.html
COST: $20 for OCC members, $30 for non-members
If you have specific questions, email occrwaonlineclass@yahoo.com


What does Nora Roberts, Stephen King, George Lucas and all of those other blockbuster creators know about writing that makes them the mega stars that they are?

Learn about the 18 scenes that every story contains, no matter its length or genre. Find out how to identify your character’s mental gender and what impact that has upon readers. Discover how your character’s arc drives your story and how your story drives your character’s arc. Learn the four throughlines of every story and how to weave them together.

Every successful story contains characters who come alive for the reader. Every successful story is built on a solid, easy-to-master, story structure that works every single time. Every successful story lives on in the hearts and minds of readers because their authors have mastered the simple secrets needed to turn them into writing super stars. And you can, too.


Award winning writer, poet, journalist, filmmaker Carol Hughes has a lot more in common with Jason Bourne than Matt Damon. But Matt Damon is definitely cuter. So she’s now turning her real life adventures into fictional stories – much to the consternation of former colleagues.
