What do students say about How to Write Powerhouse Scenes?

This easy to follow course was an eye-opener and dramatically improved my writing at the scene level. No more boring scenes for me! That's how to write exciting, page-turning books.

--Maggie R.


A lot of courses tell you to outline your book, listing each scene and a general description of what's happening in it... and then write those scenes.

It's not that simple.

Lynn's "How to Write Powerhouse Scenes" course teaches you EXACTLY what goes into a scene, from start to finish. She explains what should (and shouldn't) happen in each scene, depending on its purpose, the kind of conflict (if any) it features, and so on.

This course is so important, I created a notebook specifically for it. The notebook is red, so I never overlook it. And, it's on top of my bookcase of writing references.

I highly recommend this course. Even the best plot will fail if your scenes don't support it. Lynn's course shows you how to succeed.
