Free Classes – How to write a book in 2024

Do you get lost in the middle of messy manuscripts and then end up losing thousands of words? Do you never get to type The End? Do you see the value of plotting, but just can’t (and don’t really want to) force your story into a rigid and often boring plan? We need to change the way we think about plotting and novel-writing. 

If you don’t want to plot and you don’t want to get lost again, but you do want to finish your book there is another solution. During the “How to Write a Book” class, you will learn about plotting, but also about what it really takes to start and finish a book.
