Story Chat Testimonials

Clodagh Whelan Author, 'Back to Life - Finding the Dream'


“It was a pleasure meeting with Bonnie in Dublin recently. After reading and absorbed the outline concept for my next book and gave me some very useful and practical insights into crafting the storyline. Her advice, from an objective and experienced perspective, on both creative and commercial aspects had been invaluable to me.”

It was so good to have a breakout session with you and my main observations are the following:Clear guidance on how to proceed with plot.Advice on three act structure and practical suggestions.A real sense that you had engaged with my storyline and thus were able to give valuable insights.Asked difficult to answer questions that made me think, and hopefully, have strengthened the plot line.Explained what a through line is.                                                                                 Thanks so much once again, Bonnie.                                                                                                                      Audrey Talbot

 I found our chat very helpful, it helped me to narrow my focus and made me realise how important it is to be specific. My novel may well need a re-write but I seriously need a synopsis writing workshop!!
