Joanne Lane, Fictionary Certified StoryCoach Editor
I thought I was a good editor, and then I completed the StoryCoach certification. What I learned has taken me further into an understanding and application of story elements than I ever dreamed possible.
This included things like understanding point of view in the scene and its importance, the use of objects, plot point locations, how scenes open and close, how characters are used and when, elements like backstory and flashbacks, the different kinds of tension that keep a reader interested, and so much more.
The end result is I’m a much better editor today and my clients have benefited. Completing the reading materials, engaging in the videos, and participating in the Q&A sessions with the training team really helped me understand the content and also how to apply it to my own work.
It was also a thoroughly enjoyable process and didn’t feel like work at all. If you like language, words, learning, and want to be a better editor, StoryCoach certification is the ideal choice for you.
