Novel Writing Tips

Kritikme founder and tutor Louise shares her novel writing tips on important subjects from plot to prose style in articles, tools and downloads. A bolt-on course for those writing YA, crossover/children's.

The Wobbles

The 'motion sickness' of writing is caused by the gap between your craft skills and your judgement, and the need for constant revision and backtracking as you move forwards. It's normal to wobble, but it doesn't feel good. We have tips and reassurance for wobblers.


Join us for our seasonal drinks events in London at Waterstones Fifth Floor. Enjoy a cocktail and some banter with your fellow writers. Ghost stories, shaggy dog stories and tall tales included.

Home Retreat Week

One week every season, we book a week off work, down tools at our day job and stay home to write. With the social media embargo, and evening team chats, it's the way to be alone in good company!

Sunday Evening Team Chats

Every other Sunday at 8pm, your tutor Louise hosts a live online team chat which you book in for in advance here. We kick off with 'How was your writing week?' Laughter (and sharing of novel writing tips.)

'This is a group of writers who are serious about what they do but not about who they are (which means there's always room for a bit of light hearted banter as well as solid support). I have learnt so much about myself as a writer in the last few months and gained so much in confidence. Cannot praise Kritikme highly enough.'
