This summer I decided make my guide for those who want to a write a novel in a year available on multiple ebook platforms.
In other words, I'm opting for wide digital distribution rather than keeping the book in the Kindle Unlimited program.
A Novel In A Year
Some writers pen and publish multiple novels per year. If you're where I was for most of my career, though, you're fitting writing in around other significant responsibilities or work.
With that kind of schedule, finishing a novel in a year is a big achievement.
But it's a doable one. The One-Year Novelist aims to help you write a novel in a year without shortchanging other important parts of life.
Customize To Fit Your Writing Style Or Schedule
The book breaks down the steps from idea to a finished draft on a week-by-week basis. But it's not one-size-fits-all.
Instead, it's adjustable so it works for your life or way of writing.
For example, if you've already plotted your novel, or you'd rather start writing without planning first, you can skip right to the sections on writing the draft. (Though I suggest at least skimming the plotting section as it may help you figure out where you want to go.)
You can also go through the weeks more quickly or slowly if you want to finish faster or you feel you need more time.
Finally, breaks are built in: Times to catch your breath, catch up on other things, or reward yourself for a job well done.
A Boost When You Need It
On the subject of rewards, The One-Year Novelist includes more than a plot framework or step-by-step writing process.
It also includes quick exercises to help you stay motivated and meet your goals. And it encourages you to reward yourself when you reach a milestone.
All are designed to help you stay on track and feel good about your writing.
In short, the One-Year Novelist is for you if:
- You have a great idea for a novel and aren't sure you have time to write it
- You've started a novel and want help getting to the finish line
- You've written novels before but are looking for a way to streamline your process
