    You reach the middle of your story and suddenly you are stuck. You don’t know where or how to build more tension or suspense in key scenes. Maybe you need to find better transitions or rethink the pacing, learning how to keep your readers glued to your plot. Let’s figure out what to do and untangle the knots in this hands-on, problem solving class. We will use short and effective workshops and especially tailored craft lessons and prompts. After these five weeks you will be able to move on with your story, setting goals to the finish line.
