Free Prewriting Course Update

Hello writers.

I’ve added two new components to the prewriting mini-course.

  • Using Images to Add a Visual Element to Your Prewriting
  • Conversing with Your Characters

Here’s the link…

In the next week, all components will be assembled in a Teachable course.

If you’re interested in joining that version of the still-free course, just fill out the form below or email me at the address below.

Yes, I want to take the prewriting course!

Any questions, suggestions, or requests?

Prewriting Course Components


I’ve been sharing components of my prewriting mini-course and will continue to add to this page. So far, I have posted the ‘using a concept list’ video, with two samples, and a 23-point ‘James Patterson on outlining’ PDF.

I will be combining them all with additional resources in my Teachable course, but for now, if you’re interested…

This page can also be found by clicking ‘Menu’ in the upper right corner of this page.

Let me know if you have questions: .

For now, it’s time for:
