Module 1: The Lights Come Up


Included with this Module:
1.  Understanding The Reader-Writer Curve (video)
2.  Pacing a Thriller & Connecting With Readers (video)
3.  Frank Conroy: “The Writers’ Workshop” (PDF download)



We’ll start this module with the grounding—creating the foundation to engage a reader in starting your piece.

Your assignment for week one is to open a story with the given information a reader needs for your story to begin from a point of showing. Bring us into a story with specific details, images, and characters in physical actions. No, this doesn’t have to be a knife fight or ten-pin bowling. Let the actions and details come to you from the story you want to write.
