Writing People and Places with Patricia Charpentier




People are the vehicles through which we tell our stories, and places are the containers that hold our experiences, so it’s critical that we write vividly about the people and places of our lives. Announcing Patricia Chaprentier’s next program, Writing People and Places, which begins Tuesday, June 14th with an informative call where you meet your fellow travelers on this journey. 


Writing People and Places runs for one month, and in that time, you receive more than ten instructional videos, which give you a proven method to write richly about people and places. While this program is geared toward life story writing, many fiction writers tell me the information in the videos helped them greatly in creating and developing characters. Topics in the Writing People and Places include how to:
  • write about people
  • feature major and minor characters
  • create good dialog
  • punctuate dialog
  • set the stage
  • write in scene
  • show (don't tell) emotion
  • quiet the critic
  • slay the dragon (a look at Dragon Naturally Speaking, a speech-to-text software)
  • read like a writer, and more.
With each video comes a useful note-taking outline and a helpful assignment, which allows you to apply the information you just learned. Handouts, charts, and other aids are also available with many of the videos.

In addition to the videos you watch at your convenience as often as you’d like for six full months, you are also invited to three live calls designed to answer your questions. The group calls are recorded, so if you miss one, you can always listen to a playback. You are also entitled to a thirty-minute, one-on-one coaching session with Patricia tailored to your needs.

If you’ve ever priced programs of this nature, you likely found that they cost $1,000 or more, but Patricia wants as many people as possible to experience this training, so I’m not charging near that amount.

You can participate fully in the program—receive all the videos, outlines, 
assignments, and handouts; join the three Q andA calls; enjoy a coaching 
session designed just for you—all for just $129, if you register before 
June 1st. After June 1st, the price goes up to $149.
 
Patricia loves to help you make the people in your life as vivid on the page
 as they are in your memory and paint pictures in the minds of your readers 
of the key places in your life. Join her for this all-important program.
 
Go through the first two weeks, do the assignments, participate fully, and if you find this program is not for you, she will refund your full payment, no questions asked. Sign up for Writing People and Places today. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
