We’ve partnered with Reedsy and created a free course on Story Editing. Reedsy has a series of courses for writing, editing, and publishing. All are free. All are 10 days. You’ll receive an email each day with your course material.
Want to learn how to perform your own story edit? Go scene-by-scene and evaluate each story element to learn how to improve your whole story and make everything flow together.
In this email course, author and Fictionary CEO Kristina Stanley (That’s me) shares her method for ensuring that your story is well-told, well-paced and highly effective. Over ten lessons, you will be guided through the process of reviewing your story, scene-by-scene, with the help of a downloadable resource that you will receive in lesson one.
What you’ll learn in this Story Editing course:
- Why you need to perform a story edit
- How to choose the best location for a scene
- How to identify problems with tension and conflict
- How to effectively deploy flashback and backstory
- How to engage your readers with the story arc
PS. If you take this course, there is a coupon code for Fictionary StoryTeller included in the final lesson.
If you take the course, I’d love to get your feedback. The course will help you if you decide you use Fictionary for your story editing.
