Write your novel in ninety days.

It's the best way.

'Utterly brilliant. Life-changing, in fact. The course, the community and the guide, Louise, are the best things that have ever happened to the writer in me. If you're serious about writing a novel, don't let it roll about for 10 years. Write it in a season, while it's fresh and you're on fire. DO THIS COURSE! I challenge you not to fall in love with it.'

— Rashmi Sirdeshpande

The six phases of writing your novel.

Relax and forget your fear of the blank page or problems with plotting. Our daily inspiring and practical lessons will lead you step by step through the process of writing a novel. Enjoy anywhere on any device.

1. Inspiration and Preparation phase

'Where do writers get their ideas from?' Start here. We prepare the right frame of mind to start in great shape. We begin to build your confidence. We make a writing plan that will work for you.

2. Construction

We make sure your idea is tight before you write. The one secret to a great idea. We open the novelists' toolbox. Creating real people not 'characters', plotting without plotting, finding the emotional heart of the novel.

3. The Swim

Point of view, first or third person? Perspective. Tense. Character and conflict driven narrative. We set the pace for productivity. Writer's block? We deal with that old chestnut fast.

 

4. Heat

At about 30,000 words, the writing of a novel can sag. Typically writers give up here. Be reassured this won't happen with Kritikme. This is where we fire your energy levels by unleashing your imagination.

 

5. Enlightenment

Theme. Voice. Style. Purpose. Your writing will never be the same again. Your book will be bolder than you imagined. The big surprise here? That you love the writing life.

 

6. Home

This is where the structure of a plot happens for real working novelists! With our Kritikme Five F's in place, we deliver you to the front door of your finished first draft. You will complete that novel this time.

Every other Sunday at 8pm, your tutor Louise hosts a live online team chat. We kick off with 'How was your writing week?' A lot of laughter, sharing of tips and advice for the coming writing week.

(What I wish I'd known as a writer twenty years ago.)

Writers are not born that way. They are typically avid readers. The craft of writing novels can be learnt. Good writing can become great writing. Because there's never a good time, this is the time. You have to write the first draft fast, ideally within a season. Writing is better with the encouragement of other writers. Writing a novel is possible no matter what kind of life you lead. Writing a novel brings new meaning to life.
