Have you always wanted to write a novel, or maybe you’ve decided to participate in NaNoWriMo this year? As a seasoned author or a fledgeling writer you know there’s more to writing a novel than pounding the keys non-stop for days on end.
I did the NaNo challenge for the first time a few years ago and it was exciting, gruelling, tiring and soooo rewarding! But I realized I could have used some help. So I set out to write down all the things I didn’t do that I would do the following year. I showed my notes to my friend and designer, Kirstie, and a few other writers and The Novel Author’s Workbook was published!
Some Things You’ll Need That Are In The Workbook
Daily Planner. Brainstorming. Premise. Outline. Character Profiles. Mapping. World Creation. Story Arc. Heroes and Villains… plus loads of inspirational posters to keep you motivated (or throw darts at when you realize you forgot to foreshadow something).
I mean, who knew characters need an arc as well as the story? Then there’s the little matter of tying the beginning to the end, and where every scene took place, and what the environment looked like, smelled like, felt like. And was I putting all these elements in? Not to mention the relevance of secondary characters and…and…and… And that’s why I created the Novel Author’s Workbook.
The workbook is available as a printed book to write in and also in our Etsy shop as a download and printable workbook you can use over and over again for all your brilliant future stories!
