Rob doesn't speculate on writing. Rob knows what writing IS, and it shows at every word he writes. Most importantly, Rob can describe in simple words the real process of writing in a way that makes it replicable by others that don't have his solid background.
I owe Rob the sense of control that I enjoy when I
work on my stories at any stage of their development.

Dear Fellow Writer,
Rob Parnell here. Let me ask you:
What do you think makes for a great story?
Can the process of writing a great story be broken down into simple components - that can be taught?
They say the craft of writing can be learned - but not genius.
I disagree. My philosophy has always been that the more we write, the
better we get. And that perceived genius is a mere by-product of
consistent, directed action towards the goal of perfection.
It is only critics (who probably can't write fiction anyway) that believe that genius is somehow 'bestowed' upon the lucky few. Tosh!

sensory density. We ask, what's the difference being
literary fiction and commercial storytelling - and
which is your speciality?
Module Three: "Construction and Meaning, Practical Tips"
Still on the practicalities of writing, we examine literary techiques: the use of words as tools or descriptors. How lack of distance between the reader and the writer is achieved. We look also at creating character empathy, the use of imagery, and conveying meaning through metaphor and the use of simile.
Crucial info on the elements of story. The effective stringing together of story 'beats' like scenes, events and transitions. How to pace and build intensity from the beginning, through the middle, to a satisfactory and climactic end.
Tips on how you can vary dialogue - advice on internal dialogue and how to convey the inner journey of the characters without the use of exposition. Also, show don't tell - and when this is inappropriate.
Module Four: "Message and Market Considerations"
Finally, we indulge in a fascinating treatise on inspiration versus method, where we learn about the rhythm and resonance of the author's voice versus the cadence of character.
We look at
market relevance, the importance of objectivity in your
message - and your quest for literary immortality.
Throughout the course we will cover writer's motives for telling great stories, plus other more practical issues like how to achieve the writer's mindset, and the use of templates for the effective planning and execution of your stories.
