IS YOUR NOVEL DRAGGING? MAYBE YOU NEED TO RAISE THE STAKES! 

Characters, like people, are stubborn. Most prefer the good old comfort zone to facing danger, failure, pain, and worse. (The nerve!) To get resistant characters to act, we must up the ante, removing all the safe choices. But how do we do that without always threatening death or destruction? Get ready to stuff your mental toolbox with ideas on how to raise the stakes.

We hope you’ll join us on April 23 at 7pm (EST) for a webinar with Becca Puglisi to learn how to “Raise the Stakes for your Stories… Without Killing Everyone!”

 

Bio: Becca Puglisi is an international speaker, writing coach, and bestselling author of books for writers—including her latest publication: a second edition of The Emotion Thesaurus, an updated and expanded version of the original volume. Her books are available in multiple languages, are sourced by US universities, and are used by novelists, screenwriters, editors, and psychologists around the world. She is passionate about learning and sharing her knowledge with others through her Writers Helping Writers blog and via One Stop For Writers—a powerhouse online library created to help writers elevate their storytelling.
