About This Course

In this lively and fun course, author and mentor Steve Alcorn shows you how to achieve success.

Perhaps you’ve started already on your novel and have stalled out with “writer’s block.” Don’t worry – we’ll help you bust the block and get you writing again. Or maybe you’ve finished your manuscript and are shocked to find it simply lacks the pizzazz that’ll put it on the bestseller list. No problem – we’ll help you polish your manuscript ’til it shines!

Here’s what will be covered in this course:

Master Point of View
Get inside the heads of your characters and narrators by conveying their unique perspective. Learn to limit the scope of what each character sees and define the world for your reader. Using “Point of View,” you can create horizons and funnel your readers’ attention where you want it to be.

Use Dialogue that Engages
Not all dialogue is created equal. In this online course, you’ll learn how to create cracking dialogue that can’t be ignored. Here, you’ll use dialogue to define character traits and perspectives. You’ll also craft unique and definitive voices to match each persona.

Create Conflict, Mystery & Suspense
Unanswered questions are what keep readers interested. This section will show you how to develop lucid complexity, strategic foreshadowing, and fascinating relationships to entice readers to keep turning the pages.

Develop Structure and Pacing
Learn to save countless hours of revision by outlining plot points in the beginning. Write your novel using the tried and true “Three Act Structure” to control pacing and plot. The Three Act Structure gives your novel a polished and professional appeal, and you’ll learn how to use it properly.

Be Your Own Editor
If you want your book to be taken seriously, you need a clean, compelling, error-free manuscript. This section will help you turn your draft into a polished and professional manuscript that agents are keen to read.

Get Published
These days it’s not enough just to complete a novel. Every author needs a platform to sell their story. This section will outline the pros and cons of agents, and self-publishing/self-promotion, so you can choose the path that’s best for you.

Take this course today and create your own novel masterpiece.

By the end of this course, you will have learned to get started with your novel.

    Great Course


    This course is full of useful information. It has made me re-think my book. There were so many things that I never considered and so many things that I learned from taking this course. The next iteration of my book is definitely going to be better.

    Thorough, one of the best writing courses here


    Not a lot of reviews for this awesome course, don’t let that fool you. There’s a lot of useful information packed into this course. Very thorough, not meant to burn through in an evening. Took me several evenings to soak up. Includes specific examples and exercises, all very easy to understand. Instructor is well spoken, knowledgeable and pleasant to listen to. Out of the novel writing courses available here, this one is well worth checking out. I’ll be coming back to this one for reminders.

    It was very Informative


    I’ve taken so many writing courses in order to learn as much as I can before diving head first into writing my first novel!
    Of the many I’ve taken, this course covered everything from first draft and character conception to manuscript completion and publishing advice!
    For those out there who want to learn more about novel writing and have assignments to test drive lesson concepts, this is a great course to take!
