Write Your Novel From the Middle: A Powerful New Approach for Plotters, Pantsers and Everyone in Between

Based on the #1 bestselling Amazon writing book, this workshop will teach you a unique method for crafting a powerful, unified novel by way of the “mirror moment” — a crucial beat that happens right in the middle of great and enduring stories. You’ll learn how to discover the true heart of your novel, and how that knowledge brings everything else, from beginning to end, into focus. Best of all, this method can be used at any time during the writing process, whether you like to outline or just wing it as you go.
