Hooking Our Readers is a course about writing in the descriptive style. The course will be published in 2023. The number of lessons has not yet been determined; however, a few of the title slides have already been designed and are shown below.
Currently, one lesson is available through the A Helpful Miscellany series as shown below (click here to see all the Helpful Miscellany lessons). It is called Crafting Vivid Scenes from a Few Dry Facts and is available to Annual Members only.
This lesson aired as a Legacy Family Tree Webinar in October 2022 and was recorded for inclusion in the WFFH syllabus. It forms the foundation of the Hooking our Readers course, which will be published in 2023.

Great ideas, inspiring! (Martha Corson)

Crafting Vivid Scenes from a Few Dry Facts
We’ve learnt how to craft vivid sentences in the Words Words Words course, but how do we combine these words to produce a vivid scene, especially when we have little information to work with? This webinar describes the process of doing so, using practical examples from Carol’s own writing. It shows how she began with very little information, then followed one path after another in a desperate attempt to find something … anything … to make her description interesting. It shows how you too can apply the same strategies to your own research and writing projects, whatever the subject.
This lesson was produced as a Legacy Family Tree Webinar, and was quickly recorded for this website. It will be expanded upon in the Hooking our Readers course, which will be published in 2023.
