What Does Nora Roberts Know That You Don't?



Bet that got your attention didn’t it? Mine too! What DOES Nora Roberts know that we don't? For that matter what does Stephen King, George Lucas and one of my all time favorites James Cameron know? Well, from May 2 to May 27 you can find out!

Carol Hughes’s “What Does Nora Roberts Know That You Don’t?” course sounds fascinating. See for yourself:


DESCRIPTION: What does Nora Roberts, Stephen King, George Lucas (STAR WARS), Stephen Spielberg (E.T.), Terry Russo (SHREK/PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN), James Cameron (TITANIC/AVATAR) know about writing that makes them the mega stars that they are? How are they able to turn out the constant string of stories that they do while you are barely able to struggle to the final page of your current WIP? Why did TITANIC and AVATAR each gross over $1 BILLION in ticket sales in only a matter of weeks? Are you interested in learning the secret techniques that each of these mega stars has in common? It’s not as hard as you think – not if you know the simple-to-master writing secrets that they know and haven’t shared with you.

Seasoned pro or beginning writer, pansters or plotter – it doesn’t make any difference. You already know that writing takes a lot of hard work, perseverance, talent and a hearty dose of luck. Without the necessary writing tools to craft your wonderful story ideas into a finished work that people want to buy, all the hard work, talent, luck and perseverance in the world is useless without a solid, well-crafted story full of multi-dimensional characters to make you story come alive for every reader – or movie-goer. Do you know what the 18 scenes are that every story contains, no matter its length or genre? Do you know what impact your character’s mental gender has upon readers? Do you even know what your character’s mental gender is? Do you know how your character’s arc drives your story? Or how your story drives your character’s arc? Do you know the quick and easy way to create heart stopping dilemmas for your characters that drive your readers wild? Do you know what the 4 throughlines of every story is? Do you know how to weave them together?

Every successful story contains characters that come alive for the reader. Every successful story is built on a solid, easy-to master, story structure that works every single time. Every successful story lives on in the hearts and minds of readers because their authors have mastered the simple secrets needed to turn them into writing super stars. And you can, too. Join us and give Nora Roberts something to worry about.

It’s just $25 for non-members of the Colorado RWA and you can book your place by clicking here.

Hi Lacey!
I was lucky to see Nora speak at the 2010 RWA conference in Florida. She was fabulous! She takes no crap. LOVE HER! One thing that resonated with me: Life is made up of dozens of little balls. Know which ones are glass and which are rubber. Don't drop the glass ones.

I have one of her quotes in my inspirations on my blog: I don't find time to write, I make time. It's my job!

I adore Nora Roberts and am amazed at her versatility. She has so many titles I can always pick up a fresh one.

You're welcome Nas!

Wendy - It would be wonderful to see Nora speak! I've caught a couple of Question and Answer sessions on YouTube but it's just not the same ;-)

I really love that quote too :-)

Cami Checketts said...

Sounds like a great book for writers. Thanks for the suggestion.

Lacey Devlin said...

Denise - I find her versatility amazing too. It's right up there with her productivity!

Lacey Devlin said...

Hi Cami! Thanks for stopping by the blog! Unfortunately it's still just an online course at the moment :( but I live in hope that Carol will turn it into a book too :)

Suzanne Jones said...

Thanks for the info, Lacey, this sounds great - if only I had more time...

Lacey Devlin said...

Suzanne - If only there were more hours in the day huh? ;-)

Suzanna Gilwen said...

A 25 hour day and an 8 day week would suit me fine.

:0)

Lacey Devlin said...

LOL! I'll get working on that ;-)

Talli Roland said...

It's a pretty safe bet she knows A LOT that I don't. Sounds like a great course.

Lacey Devlin said...

It does, doesn't it? I also love James Cameron's work. Bring on the secret techniques ;-)
