Deborah Raney's Profile Photo, Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, eyeglasses

She's down to earth, fun, and funny, like a favorite aunt or sister, but beneath that gentle exterior beats the heart of a business woman and well-established writer. Contemporary Women's Fiction's Deborah Raney is the author of 30+ inspiring books.  A Vow to Cherish is her first movie deal...so far. We are  fortunate to learn from her expertise.

SHOW ME A STORY—WRITING CINEMATICALLY

Using movie techniques—writing cinematically—is a great way to be sure you are SHOWING instead of telling, but it’s also a great way to be sure your novel reads like a script, and is therefore more likely to be considered by filmmakers. Deborah’s first novel, A Vow to Cherish, was the inspiration for the World Wide Pictures film of the same title. Through examining various film techniques and how to apply them to novel writing, she will explore showing vs. telling, point-of-view, deepening characterization, making settings come to life, and many other secrets of strong writing that will make your writing visual and vivid—and more likely to be made into a movie some day!
