hey there, friend

Are you ready to write the best book possible?

Notes to Novel™ is a 6-week online course that will teach you how to confidently write the first draft of a story you feel proud of (without getting stuck in perfectionism, endlessly staring at a blinking cursor, or throwing away more pages than you keep).

You're here because you want to write a great book.

 

  • Maybe you have some notes or even a basic outline, but now you don't know what to do next—how do you turn your ideas into a novel?

  • Maybe you've taken classes, read books, and listened to podcasts, but you still don’t know how to write a novel from start to finish 

  • Maybe you've spent years working on the same story, but you still haven’t finished it. Something is holding you back, but what?

I get it because I’ve been there, too. And so have many other writers, just like you!

Even with the best intentions, most writers never end up finishing their drafts.

There’s a statistic that says 80% of adults want to write a book but only 3% ever do.

That means that 97% of people who want to write a book never finish. Why is that?

Without a clear, step-by-step process to follow, most writers get completely lost.

They end up trying to piece together all sorts of information from the internet, craft books, and conferences, to learn how to write a book, but they still can’t figure it out.

And this can be irreversibly damaging.

Trying to write a book (and failing) takes a significant amount of time and energy. 

And because of that, many writers spend years working on the same story, writing and re-writing the same chapters but never making any real progress toward a finished draft.

Most writers get frustrated, lose hope, and wind up feeling like they’re just “not good enough” to write a book.

And so they give up on their writing dreams altogether.

But it doesn't have to be this way! Instead, can you imagine...

 

  • Having a step-by-step proven roadmap that will show you how to take your idea and turn it into a finished manuscript

  • Knowing exactly what you need to work on (and when!)—no more second guessing, spinning your wheels, or staring at the blinking cursor

  • Feeling confident and inspired to write when you sit down at your desk instead of overwhelmed, confused, and full of doubt

 the truth is...

You CAN write a great novel—you just need a proven process to follow.

"This course showed me that planning doesn’t have to be super structured—it can actually be inspiring and fun!"

“This course helped me turn my idea into a complete draft! I usually don’t plan my story before writing, so I was hesitant to sign up knowing there was a whole module on outlining. But, I have to say, after taking this course, I've totally changed my mind. This course showed me that planning doesn’t have to be super structured—it can actually be inspiring and fun!”

"This course improved my confidence when it comes to writing a book."

“This course improved my confidence when it comes to writing a book. I've taken courses on writing before, but each course focused on a specific skill like writing dialogue or world-building. None of these one-off courses taught me how to put all these skills together to actually write a novel. This course is different. The lessons build on each other, so you can really see how each element contributes to the overall story. I will definitely come back to this course every time I have a new story idea. It's great!”

"Savannah helped me cut through the noise and focus on what was most important in my story and I finished my first 100,000-word draft!"

“I had a TON of ideas for a story but no idea what to do with them. I write fantasy so I usually get consumed in world-building or creating cool magic systems, but all that doesn't make a story. And it can actually get quite overwhelming. Savannah helped me cut through the noise and focus on what was most important in my story and I finished my first 100,000-word draft! So excited!”
