Novel Middles: Suspense

Too often novel writers know their novel beginning and end but somehow get stuck in the middle. This is known as the "sagging middle," that potentially weak portion of a novel that might cause the whole structure to collapse if it does not connect the beginning to end. This class will prevent that problem through special focus on the middle and all of the tasks specific to the middle that will prevent it from collapsing.
In this class, students have the opportunity to learn how to avoid a "sagging middle" of their novels through creating enough complications that rise logically from the circumstances set up in the beginning chapters, building as the plot progresses, and leading inevitably to the climax and resolution.
Each week of the class will have assignments in reading a model suspense novel, "The Talented Mr. Ripley," by Patricia Highsmith, available free or very cheaply online. Each week students will also write pages of their own novel middles.

Starts: June 8th
