Admit it: it's time to get that great novel out of your head and onto the page, but how? Whether you're writing about dystopias, paranormal romance, magical worlds, or coming of age, you need to know the basics: structure, pacing, characterization, and narrative time. In this class, we will get words on the page through exercises that build basic novel-writing skills while generating new material for our books.
