November is coming! Get the guidance you need to GET IT DONE!


Enroll in the the November Novel Prep online course which includes exercises and videos to prepare you to write a strong novel during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month - November). This self-directed course helps you understand the importance of your story, its audience, how it is classified, story structure and character development. Completing the exercises gets you in the habit of writing and gives you the content you need to start - and finish - a novel.


You will have the opportunity to submit your course material in weekly batches prior to November 1. Your material will be reviewed and edits and suggestions will be returned to you within 72 hours.  In addition, you can submit two emails prior to November 1, with additional questions regarding your submissions. 


In addition, you will receive four 30-minute coaching calls, and may submit up to 40 pages (standard formatting) during the month of Nomber. The pages will receive editing and a summary letter. The calls may be scheduled from the time you enroll in the course until November 30. You may use the calls to discuss your course or novel submissions.


This course is limited to 5 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
