Description

WRITING NOVELS IS EASY WITH YOUR PERSISTENCE.

This creative writing course is an extension to a previous course called The Art of Storytelling in which students explored the basic elements that make up a story. In this course, however, we're going to learn in more details about the process of novel writing.

Fiction writing at first may sound very overwhelming, but actually, writing a fiction book, or a short story does not require you to enroll in a college course of creative writing. You can achieve the same result or maybe even better by self-learning. Well, This course highlights a wide range of aspects about the process of novel writing.

We have four major modules in this creative writing - novel writing course. First of all, we begin with the foundation of fiction writing which is the plot. We learn some very crucial information about plotting your novel. Secondly, we move on to the most important part, and the beating heart of the whole process of fiction that is characters development. You'll learn how you can create characters well and produce well-developed characters to use in your fiction book or short story. Thirdly, we'll look at setting and description. Here you'll learn some interesting techniques of storytelling to help you convey your story successfully. Finally, we learn the elements of style needed in the fiction writing procedure. We'll talk about how we can refine our novel, fiction book, and short stories.


At the end of this creative writing :  novel writing course, you'll gain several skills which will be helpful to you in your career. You'll be able to write compelling novels, and short stories. You will write fiction books that would sell, and most importantly, get across the meaning you want to convey. There are several writing assignments that will require you to write short narrative, and by the end of all modules, you will have the ability to compose all that you learned into a single piece of writing, which will probably be your first short story. You will get feedback from me as I go through your writings and I'll help you edit and improve your short story to make it ready for publishing.

All you have to do is to enroll to this course and unlock all its perks. There are several downloadable materials that will assist you with your learning alongside the video lectures.
