About the 3 Missing Pieces of Stunning Story Structure Webinar

If you’ve read all the books on story structure and concluded there has to be more to it than just three acts and a couple of plot points, then you’re absolutely right! It’s time to notch up your writing education from “basic” to “black belt.”

Learn how to use a strong three-act structure to build a story with the greatest possible impact on readers-and then how to take that knowledge to the next level. By the time you’ve finished, you’ll know more about story structure than the vast majority of aspiring authors will ever know.

During this live webinar, you will discover the three “missing” pieces of advanced story structure.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why the Inciting Event isn’t what you’ve always thought it is
  • What your Key Event is and how to stop putting it in the wrong scene
  • How identify your Pinch Points-and why they can make the middle of your book easier to write
  • How to create the perfect Moment of Truth to move your protagonist from reaction to action
  • How to ace your story’s Climactic Moment every single time

Who Should Attend?

  • Writers wanting to take their understanding story structure to the next level
  • Writers who have difficulties with any one part of the novel: beginning, middle, or end
  • Writers who want to learn the best way to unleash their personal vision for their stories
  • Writers who want to identify and correct common structural weaknesses

How Does the Critique Work?

All registrants are invited to submit a one-page synopsis, outlining your story’s structural arc. All submitted synopses are guaranteed a written critique by yours truly. Instructions on how to submit your work are sent after you officially register.

  1. Is there an age limit for this?

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      Nope, it’s age appropriate and any and all are welcome. 🙂

      • Checked system requirements and found the age limit. My ol’ workhorse is too old & slow. There are times I’ve wanted to take it out and shoot it, now is not one of them. 😉 (I was curious, too, after watching a clip of John Truby rail against the 3 act structure)

        Anyway, have fun! 🙂

        (come on boy, let’s head on back…)

        • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

          John Truby’s take on structure lines up with all the major beats I teach in the Three Act Structure. He just calls it something else. 😉

          • Yeah, I was a bit surprised by it since you referenced his and McKee’s work before. Guess it’s like saying ‘whole body fitness’ instead of ‘exercise’. 😉

          • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

            Hah. Kinda. :p

  2. I fear it translates to 3am my (Aussie) time on a school night/morning! So unfortunately I will be unable to attend live, but this On Demand & Critique looks pretty great.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says:

      Sorry you won’t be able to join us live! But, yes, if you sign up for this one, you still get the webinar on-demand, along with the critique.
