Anyone who has ever wanted to become a writer (or is one for that matter), knows that it's hard.
Ask any author and they often tell you that the easiest thing about writing a book is starting.
Finding the motivation to continue, especially when you hit a snag, is just one of the many things you'll have to deal with if you even hope to finish your novel.
Which is why, when I heard about Now Novel, an online novel writing course tailored specifically to your writing needs, I was immediately intrigued.
So how does it work? Because surely there's no such thing as a course designed specifically for you? Well, with Now Novel, things have definitely changed.
Since it's an online venture, in order to start your novel, you'll need to sign up for the course.The reason for doing this is so that you can save your work as you progress.
Here's how it works:
Once you've signed up, you'll be taken through three different aspects of the novel writing process, namely: finding your idea, creating the structure and writing your actual novel.
Each of the sections will take you through a process that will allow you to save and monitor your progress before you move on to the next level.
Why it's worth it:
Since I've recently just signed up for the course myself, I can tell you that it really takes you through every single step you'll ever need to write your novel.
From creating and setting the mood for your book, to conceptualising, testing your story idea and building your world within your novel, each sector is broken up into sub-sections that will ensure that you have all your bases covered.
What I especially love about the site, is that it's very to navigate. At the moment I'm currently in the first phase of the writing process and am having huge amounts of fun playing around with the creating the settings, which may I add, also helps with the research process.
If you're a little wary of signing up, don't worry, because over the next few weeks, and as part of the course, I'll be charting my progress and posting regular updates.
Hopefully by seeing whether or not I'm really finding this specific course helpful, will help you to make up your mind and take the plunge into the world of novel writing.
