HOW TO THINK SIDEWAYS (my How To Write Your Novel and Build A Writing Career course) was supposed to be closed until June.
HOW TO REVISE YOUR NOVEL was supposed to be closed until November.
But they're both open now!
I strongly recommend that you don't join both at the same time. (There are rumors of heads exploding with students who tried that.)
Seriously, BOTH courses are a lot of work, each uses different skill sets, and they're better approached one at a time than both at once.
I've taken How to Think Sideways. It teaches SO much, but the most valuable lessons I got were How to Find Your Ending and How to Find Great Ideas for Your Book. Oh, and How to Make Your Characters Matter. If you want to see a list of all the lessons, you can find it here.
I'm taking How to Revise Your Novel right now. I mentioned this before, but I revised Shadow Bound on my own about three times. I thought it was done, but it got rejected. (Very polite, personalized rejections, but still.) After I finish this course, I think it may be "the one" that gets me an agent. I can't believe how much more I see in my manuscript. It's unbelievable.
* Both courses apply to ALL genres. You do not need to be working in a specific genre to benefit from them.
* Both courses are "work-at-your-own-pace" with the added benefit of a community of dedicated writers if you choose to make use of it. (Community participation is NOT a required part of the course. The course is complete without it.)
* Both courses are online, with downloadable lessons and a student page that will keep your lessons for you.
* And with either course, you get every upgrade and new addition I make to the course, with no increase in the price you pay, and with no additional charges after you have finished paying.
Think about it.
