About the Write Your Novel Now course

There are 52 lessons in all.

Each lesson presents one or more specific story skills or techniques, with exercises.

Skills are illustrated with clear examples and include writing exercises that loosen you up and teach you how to put the skills to work with your own characters and stories.

The course is complete and self-contained. The lessons are carefully sequenced for your success. From the very start you'll hit the page running, and make steady progress toward your goal: not just writing your novel (finally!) — writing a novel that's good enough to publish.

Do I read your writing?

No. That's not how this course works. Through the lessons and exercises you internalize all the tools you need to write successfully on your own. As you write you'll know what works, what doesn't, and why, without relying on someone to point it out to you afterwards. You see it on the page. You feel it. You make it happen. The only editors you'll need are yourself and the one who pays you.

I know that's not the traditional way to teach writing, which is based on a feedback loop. All I can say is — my way works. My students get published. Success. The ultimate proof.

But maybe you don't think it will work for you. All I can say to that is — try it. Try the first lesson free right now. You've got nothing to lose... and maybe something important to discover.

What do the lessons look like?

This isn't the real first lesson — just a sample — but it shows you what to expect.

Emails are sent using Mailchimp, and are designed to be very readable no matter what kind of device you're using — laptop, phone, or tablet.

It's best if you try the first for lessons for $50. Then you can make an informed decision about whether the course is right for you. If so, you can sign up for the full course.
