Mastering the Power of Verbs (with Seth Harwood)
Verbs: they’re the strongest tool in your arsenal of words, the sharpest arrow in the quiver. Yet we often choose weak links, connector verbs instead of the strong, stunning verbs that can knock, kick, twirl, or break a character, even build, develop, or create a full story. Why? What choices are we making that we don’t even realize? Join Seth Harwood to look at the various types of verbs at our disposal, see how the right verbs can transform your writing, and develop a powerful new revision technique along the way.
