Always been jealous of the ease with which professional columnists (seem to) write their texts? It's far from easy: putting some trivial issue into such words that the text will really entertain the reader or exactly touch the sore spot (ouch!)
You don't have ample space: a few hundred words at max. In a good column, every phrase, every word, yes, even every comma is just in the right place.

In this special course, I will tell you all I know about writing columns. I will show you my approach, my way of working. I will give you insights in my own writing process plus sufficient starting points and clues in order to get started yourself. But even more important: with my methods and working approach, you will know how to differentiate yourself from your competitors!
All my knowledge of column writing, based on over fifteen years' experience, compressed into one great course!

Tell Your Story Today...
Isn't it time you finally told the story inside your heart? Within this course I will explain how to organize and begin writing a short story, novella, or novel. The concepts are the same for each form. The number of balls you need to keep in the air and for how long is the only thing that differs.

Learn the Components of Successful Storytelling...
Plot, character, and place. Learn how to juggle them all like a professional. Learn how to discipline yourself to put the first words on the page. Learn the even greater discipline required to put the last words on the page.
The thing about writing is that you never stop learning and improving your craft, and a review of the basics is helpful even to an established, USA Today bestselling author like myself. Jackson's deceptively simple course on writing a first novel is concise, and covers crucial points that every writer should know and constantly keep in mind. I especially enjoyed his advice on handling writer's block and its causes; I am guilty of reason #3. Sigh. A useful course, even for those who think they don't need it.
-- Lisa Cach, USA Today Bestselling author of the "1,001 Erotic Nights" series
