This intensive all-day masterclass will give you a practical and procedural system for story creation.

Covering:

  • how to generate infinite story seeds and ideas for your writing

  • my magic-bullet for story creation: the Plot Embryo method

  • how to create satisfying character driven stories, whether heroic or tragic

  • the magic questions to easily build any aspect of a plot embryo - character motive, compelling conflict, remarkable resolutions

  • how to nail theme and really SAY something with your story

  • common FAQs on the Plot Embryo method: pacing, subplots, protagonists and antagonists

By the end of the day, you’ll be well on your way to a having all the crucial aspects of a story working together on a single side of A4 so you can repeat the process in future.

The storytelling system you’ll learn here can be applied across mediums - to novels, screenwriting, short fiction, narrative non-fiction and more.

“Collaborative, fun and broke my problem down into manageable chunks.

Rachael was really approachable and took the time to go through everything in detail. She knows that one size doesn't fit all and had a tailored approach to my specific problem - it felt like she was just as invested as I am in the story."

“Inspiring and instructive.

Rachael offers a fresh perspective with practical advice that makes every problem imminently solvable.

I'm consistently amazed that our sessions stay with me for months afterwards. I find myself making discoveries and coming to new understandings about various aspects of my work because of something we discussed weeks earlier.

I can honestly say that with Rachael's help, I am beginning to realize that this project is going to be more than just an idea, and that I am, in fact, writing a novel."

"Rachael helped me start writing again after three years dry on my books.

Rachael is very professional and friendly, and made sure every step of the way to help me find solutions and not take over the story. She was able to easily juggle with the plot embryo method and structure thoughts when that was hard for me.

I felt secure knowing that she was there to help me organize the whole thing and find what was missing.”
