So….you want to write a story!
I’m Valerie Comer, and I’m a teacher at writers’ conferences and retreats with a number of popular topics. While workshops designed to dig deeply into the hero’s journey or into crafting a high premise statement are wonderful, I’ve seen a need to present the Big Picture of what it entails to write a story. . .from beginning to end.
This workshop is popular with those who are new to the craft of fiction and led to the formation of this website. Here I have the opportunity to expand the topics while still surveying the forest, not the trees or the twigs.
Maybe you’re here because you’re an absolute beginner trying to wrap your brain around how to write a story. Maybe you’re here because you’re stalled in the process and don’t know what the next step is—or how to complete it. Maybe you’re here with several novels under your belt and want to know what to do next.
