The amount of work that goes into writing a novel is NOT the reason why most writers never finish their drafts.
Many writers get stuck at the starting line because they don’t know how to properly get their ideas out of their heads and onto the page.
And those that do start writing either tend to fizzle out midway through a draft or they spend years writing and re-writing the same chapters but never getting to the end—which can be so disheartening.
But here's the thing...
After coaching hundreds of writers through the novel writing process, I've learned that a lack of progress usually means one thing: a weak foundation.
Without a strong foundation, even the most dedicated writer, with all their careful planning and creative ideas, can end up producing a lackluster story—or worse, never even finishing their story at all.
the truth is...
If you want to write a story that will dazzle and delight literary agents and readers, you need: a plot that hooks interest, a protagonist with a compelling goal, conflict with high stakes, and a theme with heart.JOIN THE CHALLENGE FOR $47 →
Here's what you'll learn in 5-days:
Uncovering the Heart of Your Story
Theme is the heart of a great story. It's what gives a novel depth and focus. In our first training session together, we'll walk through 2 key exercises that will help you uncover what your story is really about so you can get started on the right foot. I'll show you how your theme can influence your plot and characters, too.
Crafting Characters Readers Will Love
Your protagonist's goal is intrinsically tied to your plot and theme. Their journey to achieve their goal drives the plot, and the lessons they learn along the way helps express your theme. In our second training session, you'll learn how to craft a protagonist with a strong plot goal, wound, and motivation to fuel your story.
Developing Conflict With High Stakes
Conflict is the engine of storytelling—and a lack of conflict is where most first drafts fall short. In our third training session, I'll walk you through a few different exercises to help you come up with meaningful conflict (with high stakes) to ensure your story has the proper amount of tension to propel it forward.
Creating a Plot That Hooks Interest
Now it's time to put everything you've learned into action! In our fourth training session, I'll share my fill-in-the-blanks logline template so you can craft your very own 1-2 sentence summary that marries your plot with your characters and your theme. You'll be able to use this to guide the way as you write your draft.
5 Secrets to Start & Finish Your Draft
Voila! You have your logline drafted. You've gotten clarity on your plot, characters, and theme. And now, in our fifth training session, I'll share my top 5 secrets to help you start (and finish!) your novel with clarity and confidence. I'll show you how to move forward from the foundation you've built during this challenge.
by the end of this challenge...
You'll have the confidence and clarity to start writing your book, knowing the foundation of your idea is strong enough to support a full length novel.
I'm Savannah—a developmental editor and book coach who has helped hundreds of authors write stories they're proud of.
And if you're anything like the other writers I've worked with, you have a GREAT idea for a story, but you also worry whether or not it's strong enough to support a full-length novel. I get it, I've been there too.
But after working with hundreds of writers, I've developed a simple and straightforward process for developing a story idea from the ground up. And that's exactly what I'll teach you in this 5-day challenge.
I hope to see you there! 👋
