Product Description

There's nothing quite like staring at a blank page. These bundled lessons apply secrets from master storytellers as students discover techniques to conquer those first line blues. They will learn to -

  • Grab the reader's attention from the very first line and hold onto it.
  • Review the first lines of famous novels and develop their own style.
  • Saturate their stories with atmosphere and meaning.
  • Write to inform and entertain. And be ruthless about the editing process.
