You love stories about the holidays and you watch, read or listen to them every year.
You are not alone.
But when it comes time to write your own holiday stories, you feel a little lost.
Where do you begin?
How can you create stories that are just as contagious as the holiday films you adore watching?
Look no further. This course, by veteran writing coach Christina Katz, will walk you through the steps from holiday story concept to completion so you can pen your own unique tales.
And this time, you won’t stop after the first draft. Because Christina Katz will help you put your writing through the paces, so you can polish your piece and even submit it for publication, if this is your goal.
By watching holiday films, you can learn important lessons about writing holiday stories. You can start developing your ability to see the story you want to tell in your mind’s eye, whether it is a fictional tale or a true story. By applying story-writing techniques you learn in this course, you will take your ideas from concept to completion.
Why can't writing a holiday story be as pleasurable as watching a holiday film?
