On Demand Workshop: Elements of a Scene

Vital Scene Elements that Every Story Needs
Just like every movie needs a scene, books need a scene with a few other key ingredients too!
Strengthen Your Story by Learning How to String Together Scenes
Every good story needs a few key ingredients: characters, actions, and descriptions. When writing a book it’s important to take into account individual scenes and how they add up to build plots and storylines. Ines Johnson, an author, screenwriter, and teacher for story development and media history is going to show us how to seamlessly string together stories using her GMC (Goal, Motivation, Conflict) method. Ines has authored over 38 books, and she’s here to tell us some of her secret ingredients!

In this On Demand workshop with Ines Johnson, you will learn: 

How to launch into a scene with four different writing methods: Character, action, narrative, and setting.

How to keep the pages turning during the middle of your scenes by digging into GMC (Goal, Motivation, Conflict). 

How to hook out of a scene and into a new one without missing a beat with buttons and open doors.

By the end of this workshop, you will have a deep understanding of how a page-turning story is built and you’ll be able to strengthen your book story! This process will also help you with writer's block. When you get stuck on stories or characters not merging, the GMC process will help you stay on track!

Lover of fairytales, folklore, and mythology, Ines Johnson spends her days reimagining the stories of old in a modern world. She writes books where damsels cause the distress, princesses wield swords, and moms save the world. Ines writes books for strong women who suck at love. If you rocked out to the twisted triangle of Jem, Jericha, and Rio as a girl; if you were slayed by vampires with souls alongside Buffy; if you need your scandalous fix from Olivia Pope each week, then you’ll love her books! Aside from being a writer, professional reader, and teacher, Ines is a very bad Buddhist. She sits in sangha each week, and while others are meditating and getting their zen on, she’s contemplating how to use the teachings to strengthen her plots and character motivations. Ines lives outside Washington, DC with her two little sidekicks who are growing up way too fast.

Ines is the author of The Last Dragons series, The Beserker Saga series, The Nia Rivers Adventures, and more.
