LOVE STORY ONLINE CLASS
Discover the Secrets of Love.
Once you’ve learned all the secrets of the Love Story Online Class, you will make the audience not only see the love – but feel it, want it, and demand that it happen.
Love is the only genre where you need two equally well-defined main characters. It has a plot where surprise must come out of intimacy. And it has a plot that should naturally take only ten minutes. With Truby’s Love Story Online Class you’ll express your love story to the audience with maximum power.
This online class takes you step-by-step through the storytelling process, from one-line idea to final script, so that you can write an excellent work of fiction. In each of the lessons, you will first study the material and then complete the appropriate writing exercise.
Send your written responses to the exercises to firstname.lastname@example.org for comprehensive feedback. Then proceed to the next lesson. John Truby has designed the lessons in the order that will produce your best work in the shortest amount of time. However, you are free to take the lessons in any order you wish.
