An introduction to the course, the instructor, and what you can expect from them:
What You'll LearnPreview
|Lecture 3||1 page|
|Use these resources to boost productivity, help plan, and get that novel written! Most of these are free resources (websites and blogs), but there are some pro-level programs and apps that can also be a huge aid to you!|
|Lecture 4||1 page|
|These books aren't required, but they're very helpful. We'll be covering material presented in each one, and at times I'll reference them. Since most are paperbacks, available through Amazon, you can usually find them for less than a buck.
If you have to choose two, I'd recommend the first two on the list -- most of the stuff we'll be covering will be in these two amazing writing books!
|Writer's block isn't really this big, scary "thing" everyone's worried about... it turns out it's probably just a figment of your imagination.|
|Section 2: Finding that "Million-Dollar" Idea|
|Where to find ideas, how to vet them, and why an idea isn't all it's cracked up to be.|
Crafting A Great Story Concept
|Lecture 8||1 page|
|Use this framework to outline and brainstorm some of your best ideas.
When you're ready to turn one or two of those ideas into a full-fledged concept, use the next PDF document, The Idea/Concept Framework (2 of 2).
|Lecture 9||1 page|
|Use this framework to explore your ideas in greater detail, asking and answering some key questions that spell the difference between an idea and a concept.|
|Recommended homework for Section 2.|
|Brainstorming tips and tricks, and inspiration from other authors.|
|Section 3: Understanding Plot|
|The 5 Plot Elements are crucial to developing a believable and entertaining premise, and they are the foundation upon which your entire novel will be built.|
|Lecture 14||1 page|
|Use this worksheet to answer the 7 Story Questions about your novel.|
|The Two-Sentence Method is a long-form version of the elevator pitch for your novel. It's also the backbone of your entire structure, and could possibly be the beginnings of a great back cover blurb!|
|Lecture 16||1 page|
