How to Write a Novel Step by Step
The Roadmap is a complete step-by-step process for writing a novel.
It works by starting with a basic story idea and expanding and layering it until you have a complete manuscript.
It uses a carefully structured approach to build all the critical elements in a practical, relational way – allowing characters, plot, situation, opponents and disaster to all influence each other and evolve together as the novel is planned, drafted and edited.
Each step contains an achievable task which builds on the last, and includes introductions and explanations of the common features of fiction writing that sells, with examples for clarification.
Each article assumes minimum prior knowledge, so it’s perfect for beginners, and if you’re already familiar with some or most of the principles of creative writing, you can just skip ahead.
