So you’ve got a story idea. How do you get started?

In this workshop, we’ll discuss strategies for thinking through your idea and turning that idea into a novel. Even if you’re allergic to outlines, this workshop can give you some ways to think through your novel. This includes:
• Answering essential questions about your characters and plot before you start writing.​
• Figuring out what you need to know before you start writing, including what you need to make up and what you need to research.​
• Thinking about plotting in a few different ways: plot beats, act structure, outlines, and synopses.​
• Making a plan for when and how to write the novel, including making time and finding your ideal writing time.​
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.
