Writing novels like thrillers and mysteries require a fast pace combined with strong characters, believable situations and plenty of twists and turns. This four part course includes detailed handouts as well as in-class and take home assignments. Learn how to foreshadow with clues, both false and real, as well as create strong heroes and villains. Students will learn how write in their true voice, how to create a sense of urgency, and how to give the reader a break. By the end of this course students should have a concrete timeline, strong characters, great locations and a solid plot.
