Write Your Novel This Year

Get Support & Accountability to Finish Your book

So you want to write a novel, but you don’t know how to begin. Maybe you tried writing a novel in the past but didn’t finish. Maybe you took writing classes in college or even completed an MFA, but you need guidance and inspiration to get to the next level.

In Novel in Nine, you will write a complete first draft of your novel in eight months and devote the ninth month to revision. The program consists of a targeted series of progressive video and written lessons, assignments, worksheets, self-assessments, and word count check-ins.

Program dates: open enrollment. The course begins the day you enroll.

Great novels don’t happen overnight. In this course, you will take the slow and steady approach. You will write 2,000–2,500 words per week. You will make steady progress and complete a solid draft of your novel or memoir in nine months. Practical, inspiring lessons and assignments will help you build your novel or memoir scene by scene, character by character, chapter by chapter.

At the end of nine months, you will have a solid novel draft of about 70,000–80,000 words.

There is no substitute for the time and imaginative work it requires to create compelling characters and construct a fictional world. Nor is there a substitute for the process of discovery and development. However, there are proven techniques you can use to bring your story to fruition, to go from idea to completed draft, and you will learn those techniques in this course.

In Novel in Nine, you get guidance, inspiration, and accountability, as well as dozens of practical lessons and one-on-one encouragement from an internationally bestselling author and veteran writing teacher.
