Back to Basics

Back to Basics is a mini-course designed to help you build a strong foundation in writing. Learn the rules so you know when, where, and how to break them to your story's benefit. Courses may occasionally highlight specific writing styles or genres where the focal topic is most commonly used (or over-used).


Each course includes a full post on our blog and a challenge. You can submit your effort for feedback.


Back to Basics is free to all writers around the world. Talk with us in the forum and on Twitter using the tag #WWB2B

Prologue Challenge: 

For this challenge, we’re going to try something a little different and narrow it down to one specific prompt. 


Consider you’re in the middle of planning a story about a strong and powerful superhero protecting the city. Write a prologue from the perspective of an Average Joe living in that city. Aim for 500 to 1,000 words.

Send us your Back to Basics scene for feedback!
