If you’re new to fiction writing, this book’s for you! (updated version!)
Are you tired of waiting for the novel in your head to magically appear? Tired of being told to “write a little bit a day every day?” How’s that advice working for you? It’s not … is it?
If it was, your novel would be done. But I hear you. When I first learned how to write a novel, that “helpful” information … wasn’t. I went slowly, writing a little each day like all the authors told me to. Then I’d get disinterested or distracted and my novel would get DEStructed!
You’ve listened to the podcasts, taken the writing workshops, read how to write a novel guides, but your novel still isn’t written. Are you still waiting for that “1 hour a day” conventional wisdom to pay off?
A numbers game. The number of books you publish, reviews you get, and downloads you can expect are all partly a function of how much you write—how many books you publish. Conventional “wisdom” is getting us indie authors nowhere.
Wouldn’t it be great to have something to show for all your hard work? Forget next year! What about sitting down to proofread your first draft next week?
That’s what I want to show you how to do, because I’ve been there.
In this step-by-step writing workshop—feels more like adrenaline boot camp—Steve Windsor walks you through how he writes novels in 9 “days.” With concrete examples of how to apply story structure, outlining, and plotting, you learn to drive your hero through his or her story.
You can write a novel in less time than it takes you to need your next haircut. Steve shows you how blockbuster novels and movies use a formula that’s as old as Aristotle to produce hits.
Using examples from his own novels, best selling books… He even makes up a story right before your eyes! Steve is a hands on hardcore writer who will show you just how “easy” it is.
Make no mistake, the Nine Day Novel series isn’t for everyone. Some people like pacing themselves on their way to the death of their dreams of becoming an author. Then again, you aren’t them.
Inside the Nine Day Novel, you’ll get access to a starter file for one of the most popular writing software packages out there—Scrivener. Rather than spending hours or even days learning and creating a story structure outline, Steve did it for you.
So whether you are a yet to be discovered bestselling author or a grizzled, coffee-addicted veteran like Steve who is continually sharpening his writing sword, Nine Day Novel-Writing Faster will give you a sharp new edge on your writer’s blade.
I’ll show you how much time you really have. And I’ll give you real advice on how to use that time to write your novel faster than you ever thought possible.
