About This Course

Novel Writing 101 is a step-by-step guide to the researching, writing, polishing and editing of your first novel.

The course begins with a very important, but much overlooked aspect of novel writing, which is the RESEARCHING of your book, and in particular, why you need to take a Commercial Perspective during your research. Here, I will look at the importance of:

  • Researching the best categories and subcategories for your novel
  • Researching the best-selling books in your genre
  • Researching the best-selling authors in your genre
  • Researching the best keyword phrases to use within your book’s title, sub-title and description, on your book’s sales page

The class then continues with a look at how you should go about WRITING the first draft of your book. Here the focus is very much upon:

  • Writing quickly
  • Writing in a structured and organised manner
  • Following the rules of your book’s genre
  • The setting of daily writing targets
  • The philosophy that your First Draft Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect

The next part of the class looks at the REWRITING of that first draft, or the polishing of your manuscript. In this section, I also cover:

  • The rules of writing
  • The elements of a story

The final part of the class looks at the all-important EDITING of your book. Here I consider the 4 Different Types of Editing that every novel should go through before being published, namely:

  • The SELF-editing of your book
  • The SUBSTANTIVE Editing of your book
  • The COPY Editing of your book
  • The PROOFREADING of your book

Finally, the course concludes by taking an in-depth look at the process you will need to follow if you are unable to afford PROFESSIONAL Editors.

Novel Writing 101 really is a MUST-watch course if you are currently writing your first work of fiction, and may even be of interest if you happen to be writing a non-fiction book.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who is thinking about writing their first novel
  • Anyone who is considering beginning a part-time career as a self-published author
  • Self-published authors looking to increase the number of books they write each year
  • Authors who would like to stay ahead of the curve in their particular niche or genre
