Notes From Carol's Class: A Writer's Goals

Today the notes are actually from guest speaker Cheri Pray Earl (if I remember correctly--I'm not really a super good note taker to be honest).

Goals as writers in any novel:
  • emotion
  • tension
  • laughter
  • connection w/reader
  • story--let the character tell it, and tell a GOOD story
  • keep the MC (main character) from getting what they want
  • MC gets what they wants
  • finish
  • closure
  • satisfaction
  • suspense
  • page-turner
  • NOT Twilight
