An emotional rollercoaster

Join Michelle Douglas for "Writing an Emotional Rollercoaster" on July 13, 2024


Crafting compelling characters and stories that resonate deeply with readers is essential in fiction. It's the key to capturing their attention and keeping them engaged. When readers connect with your characters' fears, hopes, loves, and defeats, they become truly invested, eagerly turning pages, losing track of time, and recommending your book to friends.


But how do you evoke such strong emotions? How do you make readers feel your characters' experiences as if they were their own? In this workshop, you'll learn to generate emotion at both macro and micro levels. We’ll explore techniques such as character identification, visceral reactions, deep POV, showing rather than telling, and building suspense. By mastering these elements, you can create a narrative rollercoaster that captivates your audience from start to finish.



Join us to enhance your storytelling skills and leave readers eagerly anticipating your next book.
