At the heart of any good novel, behind every character and every action, there are four intangibles that the writer needs to pay constant attention to: Motivation, Anticipation, Stakes and Suspense. No matter what kind of a story you’re writing, be it character driven or plot driven, a romance, mystery, historical fiction or coming-of-age story, the forward momentum—the thing that draws the reader onward—will depend on these four elements. In this workshop we’ll look at how to guarantee your story has the MASS it needs to make it.
