30 Day to Craft Your Novel Course

 

Deadlines work for a lot of people. They’re a way to motivate you by giving you specific tasks to complete by specific times.

Being a writer demands dedication and commitment. You have to want it.

The WriterSpark 30 Days to Craft Your Novel course is just what it claims to be. It’s the nuts and bolts of creating everything you need to tell a compelling story, all in 30 days*.

By the end of our four weeks together, your virtual toolbox will be filled with everything you need to write your first novel.

  • Learn about and create plot points and pinch points for your novel
