My Book Therapy has a proven method for teaching novelists how to write their story, and with this course, it’s like having a writing coach sitting beside you, cheering you on and guiding you in the journey.
What to expect:
I don’t have time to read a book or sit in front of my computer watching a video. Listen, we know how busy life is, and for a novelist who already has a full plate with life – family, another job, friends, volunteer jobs; a storycrafter has to be able to consume lessons that their pace, in a way that fits their lifestyle. Every lesson is offered in Mp3 and print format – download it onto your kindle, your MP3 player, your computer and learn anywhere you have time.
Will this work? Yes. The Storycrafter’s Program is a proven method for creating a powerful story. I use it to create my award-winning, best-selling stories. More, I’ve broken down each step into an easy-to-understand but revolutionary system that will unravel the mystery of writing a novel and give step by step detailed instructions on how to build your own novel. No mindless exercises – every lesson, every activity is designed for you to write your novel as you progress. If you are willing to put in the work, you will finish your novel.
Am I in this alone? Nope. MBT is all about coming alongside a novelist – as much or as little as you want. Our premier Novel Coaching program is hands-on and focused. We want you to succeed! Every Module has a link to a “Submit a question” Box that links you to your Coach. Which means you get a direct line to someone who is dedicated to your success.
What is different about the Storycrafter’s Program than any other? It works. And, it’s easy to understand – no big charts, no long lists, no conflicting information about what to put into your story. Easy pieces of the puzzle that fit together – you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to write a novel when you have the right pieces.
You’ll love this program so much that you’ll find your creativity brimming and you’ll be calling your novelist friends to join in on the journey with you. Because it’s not just about this book…but the next one. And the one after that.
What people are saying:
I have taken other fiction writing workshops before, but Susan’s acronyms and explanations made it click this time. Susan covered the basics (and then some) in a fun and engaging way. And I can apply this knowledge to my project immediately. I’m confident I can write my novel now without overlooking any aspect of plot, characters or scenes. ~ M. C. Scott (www.michelecscott.com and www.mommyforward.com)
Susan May Warren’s class is an incredible experience which I would definitely suggest to any unpublished writers looking to get published or for beginning authors wanted to learn how to write a novel. ~ C. Fontenelle
Learning the craft of writing occurs at many different levels. Susan holds the hand of the beginning writer, explains the craft, helps him/her visualize the craft in movies and books, and most importantly, points it out in the writing of the participant. ~ R. Schmeckpeper
I’m a committed caring college teacher, but the degree of personal attention/help personally invested in each attendee is remarkable and unequalled. It is nurturing and inspiring, and accomplishes a great deal. ~ D. Topliff
