Watch out for this space. We are developing our YouTube content for non-native English language users and beginner writers and will include courses on writing fiction and tips and tricks.
In the meantime, I have curated some how-to-write content from other YouTubers. When we launch, sometime in 2022, we will be posting a free mini-course on our YouTube channel. We will also offer an affordable course at a reasonable price and a comprehensive course that will cost a little more but cover a lot more.
We all have a favourite author, and we can distinguish them from their voice. Their self-expression is what makes them stand out from other writers and creates their unique style. Think Dan Brown and Stephen King!
Characters, whether minor or major, are pivotal to your story. If you have bland characters, readers will lose interest, but if you have a great character, readers can't help but become invested in your writing, even if the writing lacks - think 50 Shades of Grey. Many of us couldn't get enough of the tormented Christian Grey.
The plot helps to focus your story, so it's essential to get this right.
For example, "Kim wound her arms together to form a sort of rock climbers knot, making her looking like a human-sized pretzel."
If you can send your reader far, far away into another land, world, or universe, you are on track!
It's essential to be consistent and careful with POV; you can confuse the readers!
