Lesson 2: Character Motivation
We all want to feel. That’s why showing emotion through character motivation is essential in writing a novel that captures your reader. If there’s no feeling, we consider a novel boring and put it down.
If, on the other hand, the writer has managed to grip us with emotion right from the beginning, we can easily get sucked into a story and keep the pages turning until The End. That’s the goal of every great author: hook your reader right off the bat and keep ’em hooked!
Are you ready to learn how to write compelling stories that will grab your reader hook, line, and sinker through strong use of character motivation?

Lesson 3: Basic Novel Outline
The outline is the backbone of your novel and gives you the structure and bones from which to write the meat of your story. Most authors fall into one of two categories, “plotters” who use outlines, and “pantsers” who prefer to write freestyle allowing the style to form more organically.

Lesson 4: Turn Off Your Internal Editor
One of the most difficult parts of writing is the ability to turn off your internal editor, that voice in your head that wants to fix all the problems while you write. This not only slows you down but takes you out of being present in your story world. The more often you stop and edit, the fewer words you write. Fewer words=fewer scenes, chapters, and finished books.
