Are you keen to join the ‘Let’s Write a Novel in a Year’ program but have a few questions? Here are my answers to some frequently asked questions!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do I already have to have started my story?
A. Absolutely not, though it’s fine if you have.
Q. I have several ideas. How do I know which one to write?
A. We’re going to help you decided that in the first workshop.
Q. How much time will I need to do this course?
A. We meet live online six times a year for a half day workshop (4 hours each workshop). But all workshops will be recorded, so if you miss one, you’ll be able to catch up. I will give you ‘enrichment activities’ to do (I won’t call it homework because that term is highly triggering for many people) but everything is voluntary. You are in charge of how much you want to do.
Q. What if I don’t finish the novel by the end of the year?
A. The point of this course is to set you up with the knowledge for how to write novels, beyond our time together. Some people will finish their book, some won’t. It’s all good. Your pace is your pace. There’s no right or wrong. No one is going to be assessing your work or disapprove of you if you need a little more time to finish. You cannot fail!
Q. Will there be group work?
A. At times, it is helpful to break into smaller groups to brainstorm and discuss different ideas. We can do this online in breakout groups. I will provide a structure for you to follow to support the process.
Q. Will you look at what I’m writing?
A. There will be a couple of opportunities for you to send me samples of your work. I will give you more info on this as we go.
If you have other questions, please feel free to email them to me.
