Description:Developing a structure for any story is very much like architectural blueprinting. It requires a concept, a theme, a foundation, a logical progression, and a consistent style. To develop these elements like a pro, you must start with a blueprint. Using the fundamental techniques of dramatic story structure, this course will teach you how to blueprint a bare-boned story structure in a three to five page story outline. This is an essential discipline for anyone who wants to write novels, screenplays, plays, and any other long-form work. The principles of Story Structure as taught by Bill Cannon, a major studio Hollywood writer, will be useful to you for other types of writing as well, including term papers, dissertations, non-fiction, business reports, even poetry and songwriting. Once you have mastered the special story structure techniques taught in this course, you will be prepared to ...write like a pro. Requirements: Internet access, E-mail, Netscape or Internet Explorer Web browser.
