By the time, you finish this class, you should understand:

Chapter Structure (aka Outline Your Book)
I strongly suggest taking the class Starting Your Memoir before taking this course. For more information, click here.
This class on chapter structure (also titled "Create a Full Outline of Your Book") is designed to help you figure out the plot for your entire book. I've found that understanding structure before you write your book will allow you to write your book in a fraction of the time and will keep you from having to throw out tons of your text later.
If you do the weekly assignments, you should have a full outline of your book written by the end of class. You should also have completed several scenes.
By the time you finish this course, you should understand:
The course includes about four hours' worth of video content. There are also several short reading assignments.
This class will be released in mid-October. Sign up on Wendy's mailing list to learn more.
