6 (+1) Months to a Novel
The planning, scheduling, and encouragement you need to complete a draft of your novel
I'm a fiction writer. I've completed and published several short stories, but I've never finished a draft of a novel. Not for lack of trying, but because I didn't know what I needed in order to get myself to do it.
What I realized I needed was two-fold:
So I developed this program to help me reach my goal of finishing a novel, and I'm inviting you to try it with me for the first time!
The program is primarily online-based (with regular in-person meetups and instruction if you're in the Denver area), structured over six months (plus one), and the cost is a donation of your choosing - whatever you can afford!
Month 1 - Planning:
schedule and routine, concept and setting, character and POV, structure, plot, and theme
Month 2 - Beginning:
kick-off celebration, accountability groups, writing every day, overcoming writers block
Month 3 - Evaluating:
adapting your schedule, staying on pace, encouraging each other, writing every day
Month 4 - Struggling:
hangups and holdups, writing what happens, celebrating the halfway point, writing every day
Month 5 - Persevering:
following your characters, giving yourself grace, accepting the bad first draft, writing every day
Month 6 - Completing:
making up for lost time, unexpected endings, resetting if you didn't finish, writing every day
Month 6 (+1) - Continuing:
celebrating our accomplishments, putting it away, revising vs rewriting, what to do once it's polished
