Writing a novel?





Get that novel done.

Everything you need to write a novel. 

Writing a novel is a commitment and it's good, necessary even, to crack on and get a first draft down in a season as we do on the Ninety Day Novel ® course.

'The first draft of a book — even a long one — should take no more than three months, the length of a season. If you spend too long on your piece, the story begins to take on an odd foreign feel.’  Stephen King.

But how do you know you’re doing the right things, in the right order, at the right time?

Award-winning, Man Booker longlisted, published author of four novels, Louise Dean will walk you through creating the first draft of your novel from scratch and guide you through to ‘The End’. 

You'll leave the course with a new writing habit, a way of writing that will last you a lifetime, and the confidence to know you're not wasting your time anymore. You're a writer writing.

So sign up, and get that novel done. Because there's never a right time, this is the right place.
