Plotting with Revelations: Dashboard

Welcome!

I’m so glad you’re here! This course is split into three units, each comprising of several lessons and a worksheet. Each unit is designed to be completed in roughly a week, but staying “on schedule” matters only if you want to have completed all the lessons before you attend the live Q&A at the end of the course. (For the current session, this date is 12/6/20, time tbd.) The live Q&A will be saved and accessible via this dashboard, so if you’re unable to complete the material for several months, you can still watch the playback at your convenience.

In short: work through the content at your own pace. The only real rule is that you should move through the units and lessons in order. 

Unit One:
Character Foundations

An introduction to revelations, how they help complete character arcs, and a deep dive into the building blocks of your hero.

Unit Two:
Pacing Revelations

A closer look at plot and when your three key revelations should fall to create a well-paced, expertly executed character arc. 

Unit Three:
The Greater Cast

A breakdown of your supporting cast, with a focus on key interactions between your hero and their allies and opponents.

Live Q&A

Learn about the live Q&A, submit your questions in advance, and access the Q&A playback archive.
