So you want to plan a novel. Are you more of a pantser? Are you allergic to outlines? Don’t know where to start? Just need a little help? Have no fear! Every novel has a few basic components.

First, we’ll look at plot beats, the basic building blocks of a story, and think about ways to plan them in advance to help guide your writing process. Then we’ll take a deep dive into character, because knowing your characters before you write will make writing about them much easier.

Students can take away a Novel Planning Kit handout to help guide the writing process and write their best books!
Class Format
Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.

The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
