and Get Your Novel Written
Having a great idea for a story isn’t enough to get your novel across the finish line. You also need to know how to overcome the two biggest reasons that novelists fail: plotting problems and procrastination.
The 30 Day Novel Success Journal gives you the tools to overcome these obstacles and get your novel written.
A Stress-Free Approach to Plotting
Lynn combines elements of three-act structure, the character growth arc, and the Hero’s Journey to create an extremely flexible story blueprint that you can adapt to the story you want to tell.
The blueprint is broken down into 30 steps, so you’ll know exactly where your characters should be in their journey each day. Each day’s step is paired with brainstorming questions to help you shape your story for maximum impact.
Already have an outline? You can also use the blueprint as a guide to fine-tune your existing novel outline for stronger pacing.
Kick Procrastination to the Curb
Each day’s journal entry includes a series of After You Write questions to help you identify and overcome distractions and self-sabotaging thoughts that can cause you to procrastinate.
By the end of this 30-day program, you’ll know how to shift into a more positive, productive mindset.
You’ll learn how to:
- Prepare mentally and physically for a writing marathon
- Break your novel down into manageable chunks
- Stay connected with your motivation
- Fill the holes in your plot outline
- Stimulate your creativity with Ray Bradbury’s dream technique
